Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 on a Toshiba Satellite L775-S7105, and I recently tried to make some changes to the grub file. What I was trying to fix didn't work, and now my battery status at the top right is not updating. If I boot with it plugged in, it says it is plugged in, and vice-versa. My grub file has these contents:

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

I am new to this, and have no idea what to change, so any help would be appreciated.

UPDATE: Wow. That was fast. I suspended, logged back in, and rebooted, and it is fixed.
