View Full Version : [ubuntu] No charge time shown on my laptop!

September 21st, 2008, 02:23 AM
Ok, I have a Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527 as stated on my signature. It worked great until 2 days ago. I'm currently using Ubuntu Hardy, and 2 days ago when I turned it on the estimated charge time showed on the gnome-power-applet and on Cairo Dock's battery icon both say "unknown" (the dock's icon actually says "-:--". I don't know what the heck is wrong with this thing! The strangest thing is that on Live CD it does the same, and it never did before! It just says the charge time is unknown.

The only thing I recall doing was installing "lm-sensors" but I got tired of the tutorial i was reading and delete and uninstalled everything lm-sensors related.

So please! PLEASE! Any help will be greatly appreciated! I don't know what could've happened here! I don't know if it was an update, acpi, or something else! So please help me!

Thanks in adavance!
