After plug/unplug power supply nothing happened, means battery icon does not have any reflect or when unplug power supply use battery until become completely empty without hibernate or even shut down. Just after restart can detect plug/unplug. This problem occurred (I think) after removing gnome-shell.

When power plugged in:

Add acpi_osi=Linux to grub and update it, but still have the same problem.

Run sudo aptitude reinstall gnome-power-manager but ...

$ upower -m

My problem solved by reinstalling upower and gnome-power-manager. sudo apt-get purge upower gnome-power-manager and sudo apt-get install upower gnome-power-manager

    On Linux Mint 18.2 these steps uninstalled the window manager, cinnamon. I had to Ctrl-Alt-F1 into a terminal session, then sudo apt-get install cinnamon; cinnamon --restart to get the system running again. The AC power recognition is still not working. – user207863 Aug 15 '17 at 14:05
  • @user207863 Same effect on ubuntu 14.04, I had to reinstall ubuntu-desktop. The AC power recognition is still not working – Mario Trucco Sep 22 '17 at 7:43
  • I checked, today, and it magically started working. My guess is that a recent kernel upgrade fixed the problem. I'm on distro Linux Mint 18.2, kernel version 4.10.0-35-generic #39~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP. – user207863 Sep 23 '17 at 16:18
