    12.10 Two batteries displayed

    Ubuntu is displaying that I have two batteries when I click on the battery icon in the top menu. The one that is always displayed is not a battery I have. I have to click on the icon to see my real battery. Whats going on and how do I fix this? I hope I actually get help, as I never do on here..

    Hi,
    I sometimes have the same problem in ubuntu 10.10. However, after a restart the problem goes away.

    Just restarted and it didn't fix it... The level is always at 44% for the fake battery too.

    just took the battery of the bluetooth mouse and look what's happen.
    if both symbols gone be sad. if only one is gone - be happy. so you can see when you have to buy now batteries for your bluetooth.

    I wish I had a working battery indicator visible or available with 12.04 lTS . Did you load an additional application or was it standard with your 12.10.

    It just came working with it... Also, regarding the person who said to be happy about this... It thinks its a laptop battery and sometimes reads the batteries level wrong... Once it thought it was empty and just shut down my computer..
