Little problem with battery applet in Gnome
I'm trying to fix a strange problem with Slackware 10.1 with 2.6.10 kernel and Dropline Gnome. I've an Acer Travelmate 292LCi. I use Dropline Gnome as desktop and I put the battery control applet in the top panel of desktop. This applet have a little icon: a battery if the Laptop is running on battery power, and a wire if the laptop is running on AC power. But it seems that the applet recognize che AC power supply only from root!!! If I use gnome from a normal user it says the laptop is always running on battery power.
It's surely a permission problem on some device or command, but I don't know which command/device?
An important information is that if I logout from root and the login in my normal userid it starts to recognize the AC battery power, it's like root turns on something...
Can you help me?
Thanks in advance, regards.
