As a newbie to Ubuntu and after getting everything I needed working okay in 9.04 I upgraded to 9.10. First off both my wireless and eth internet connection stopped working - I guess it's something to do with wicd and then the battery would not charge or to be more precise it charges for a couple of minutes then shuts down. I have the laptop working now by removing the battery and reverting back to 9.04 it seemed the easiest way - internet is okay again.
How do I solve my battery charging problem please. After googling is it something to do with gnome power management but I do not understand how to fix it.
