Recently I installed Xubuntu on my old Latitude D620. I'm having a problem where there's no battery indicator in the taskbar and there's no option to turn it on. Heck, xubuntu can't even find the battery. There's no battery section when I go to /proc/acpi/. When I run acpi -V it outputs
tyler@tyler-D620:~$ acpi -V Adapter 0: on-line Thermal 0: ok, 54.5 degrees C Thermal 0: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 126.0 degrees C Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 10 Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10
by the way, should I be worried about that 126 degC thing?
Anways when I run upower -d it outputs:
tyler@tyler-D620:~$ upower -d Device: /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/line_power_AC native-path: /sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/LNXSYBUS:00/ACPI0003:00/power_supply/AC power supply: yes updated: Wed Jul 24 15:47:27 2013 (1071 seconds ago) has history: no has statistics: no line-power online: yes Daemon: daemon-version: 0.9.20 can-suspend: yes can-hibernate: no on-battery: no on-low-battery: no lid-is-closed: no lid-is-present: yes is-docked: no
As a final note I would like to note that this is my first time using xubuntu/linux in general...so please go easy on me :p
Thank you the help!
edit: I suppose I should add that the laptop can run without the adapter plugged in, but only for about 20 minutes.
