View Full Version : [SOLVED] battery percentage notification status

November 30th, 2010, 08:10 PM
- instead of the 'acpi=off', use the 'nolapic' or 'noapic' command. I use 'nolapic'.
- acpi stands for advanced control, power interface. you need the acpi to see your battery.

my setup: asus f50sv (laptop)

try it:
- when the computer boots, select a kernel with 'e' to edit and right before it says 'quiet splash' type 'nolapic'.
- hit 'ctrl-x' to boot.
If it's a successful boot then you know this option will work for you.
If not try another one of these commands.

Consider adding it to startup script so you don't need to type it every time. That's fairly technical, ask someone with a lot of computer experience to help you. I don't really want to get into it but basically you need to edit your /ect/default/grub file (or do what I did and even though it tells you not to, carefully configure your boot/grub/grub.cfg file directly..).

this also resolved:
- I am now able to adjust my screens brightness.
- When i select shutdown off the panel, I no longer need to press the power button as well.

LINUX IS WORKING PERFECTLY NOW :DDD so stoked. i was a little leery to recommend this to people at first (although I was very impressed with how stable Linux had become), now with these issues cleared up I can knowing they'll be fine. THIS SHOULD BE STICKIED.
