ive just installed kubuntu 10.10 on my acer aspire one netbook and it doesnt detect my battery. the netbook is currently running on battery power only but the power management control module is telling me "0" number of betteries.

in the taskbar it also has "battery monitor" as a hidden icon and when i open that it has a battery with a red cross

any ideas?

ive since installed fedora kde and now fedora gnome and im getting the same problems.

once i connect the power supply the battery indicator appears in the taskbar but if i reboot with the power supply disconnected the icon dissapears again

is there a way i can get the battery indicator to remain in the taskbar all the time? in the past years ive never had this issue with linux
