I am using pclos lxde on an ibm thinkpad a21m .
The battery monitor applet in the panel shows green when the laptop is plugged in and yellow when unplugged, but the percent never changes from 100%. Even when the battery is nearly completely drained.
I did this in terminal and got this in reply:
When using enlightenment the battery monitor works only if the internal box is checked, rather than the hal box. I'm tossing that out here because it might be relevant in some way. Also when using xfce, the battery monitor displays the correct percentage as well. But I prefer lxde on this old machine.
Is there a config file or something I can edit to get this sorted so the battery monitor in lxpanel can tell me how much battery I have left?
