    asus eee battery meter

    Hi
    I have an Asus EEE PC900. Just installed 10.04 netbook remix and everything works fine straight out of the box. I am very pleased with ubuntu - it works great and is a vast improvement on windows xp which was previously installed on the asus.

    Just one small thing - the battery meter is never accurate as far as time remaining goes - it currently says i have 19 hours 55 minutes to go - unfortunately this is not quite true i suspect. It was the same with 9.10, Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Thanks

    Mike

    Same problem on my EeePC 900. It tells me the battery has 19 hours 55 minutes of power left, no matter what.

    Thanks for the tip. I made those suggested grub config changes, and I installed eee-applet, but my EeePC still reports the battery charge incorrectly.

    I'd love to fix this problem, this is the main problem with Ubuntu on my eee.
