Is there any way to get the battery status without acpi? I'm using U 11.10 and I needed to install acpi via apt-get. So I guess there's another command that is used to check battery status rather that acpi.
Try cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state in a terminal. Alternatively, change the 'state' to '*' to display all info in that directory
