I initially installed ubuntu 8.4 and later updated to Kubuntu using the aptitude command and prefer kubuntu over ubuntu for the GUI.

I have a major battery problems not sure if its cuz of running both on the system. I have 2 latops of the same config - acer 3680 - one with linux and another with XP. The battery on linux is always at zero and the laptop turns off the moment the AC power supply is removed. I switched batteries and they work fine on the laptop using XP.

Do I have to remove ubuntu for this or is there something else that im overlooking.

Please advise
