Battery indicator is stuck on "approximating"?
After mounting Ubuntu 10.10, the battery indicator functioned penalty (both percent continuing to be and also estimate promptly). I after that mounted and also set up some software program (Skype, Pidgin, Thunderbird, got rid of Empathy and also Evolution, ect) and also the battery meter, when clicked, constantly claims" (estimating ...)"
I've attempted running the battery to absolutely no and also billing it totally once more. If I enter into the background or information, the percent is videotaped appropriately.
Any kind of suggestions?
I experience this practices whenever I make use of a power adaptor that can not provide the ideal quantity of power to the laptop computer, such as making use of a display adaptor for my laptop computer (I left mine in the house that day). There is possibly been an upgrade to the bit (more than likely, yet maybe another thing) that is creating Ubuntu to not get the ideal quantity of cost out of the wall surface. Attempt starting up with the previous bit variation (s) and also see what takes place.
This is recognized bug that influences HP, Compaq, Dell and also various other makes. This is as a result of an adjustment made in gnome - power - supervisor where by the price quote is done promptly continuing to be, as opposed to percent. This adjustment does not play wonderful with some equipment and also is why you are seeing (estimaing ...) frequently.
The bug record concerning it is below if you expensive a read: . https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/+source/gnome-power-manager/+bug/629258
At this time, I think there is no solution readily available. Nonetheless you can click the estimating ... and also it will certainly raise an extra thorough sight of your battery details, which will certainly present the percent of cost.
