    [ubuntu] Re: Connect to webdav in 13.04

    Did you find how?

    I am running into the same problem.

    BTW.. Why did Ubuntu call the file manager "files"? Searching the web doesn't produce helpful results!

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Terrible battery level prediction since 10.10 - Any fixes?

    Tried the new kernel, but it did no good.

    Just upgraded to 12.04 beta yesterday. First impressions appear that prediction is OK with 12.04.

    Using the cat commands as described in earlier posts...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Terrible battery level prediction since 10.10 - Any fixes?

    It isn't hardware. Really, its not.

    Battery prediction still works fine on 10.10 & also Windows.

    I need to move forward with a fix for 11.10, or hope that 12.04 has a fix.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Terrible battery level prediction since 10.10 - Any fixes?

    An additional note:

    I booted to 10.10 live CD & running the previous commands gives the same results.

    Strange that 10.10 was absolutely fine at predicting the battery.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Terrible battery level prediction since 10.10 - Any fixes?

    The battery is fine (I have 2). Discount any hardware problem.

    I have dual boot on my laptop & the other OS has reasonable prediction.

    The problem started since Unity. I can roll back to 10.10...

    Hi Guys,

    Ubuntu battery prediction is terrible with my laptop. Upon power-up, Ubuntu frequently reports one minute of battery power remaining, yet the hardware LED is happily glowing green.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unreliable wireless in 11.10

    Right... You can look at the original commands & use iwl3945 instead of iwl4965.

    Cheers.

    You are probably using a different driver to iwl4965.

    Run this to see:


    sudo hwinfo --netcard | grep Driver:

    Modify the command you used earlier to fit your system.
