I can't seem to get the battery applet to report remaining percentage. The applet changes color from Green to Yellow but always reports 100%. So when it is Yellow (power source removed it reports 100% remaining.) when I plug it in it goes green and reports 100% and 5 min to recharge? these commands below seem to be right on, any ideas?

Code:
cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/info
present: yes
design capacity: 4300 mAh
last full capacity: 4172 mAh
battery technology: rechargeable
design voltage: 10800 mV
design capacity warning: 418 mAh
design capacity low: 209 mAh
cycle count: 0
capacity granularity 1: 43 mAh
capacity granularity 2: 43 mAh
model number: 1201T
serial number:
battery type: LION
OEM info: ASUS
Code:
cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state
present: yes
capacity state: ok
charging state: discharging
present rate: 1419 mA
remaining capacity: 2785 mAh
present voltage: 11183 mV

sorry, which version are you using? the stable ones are built with slackbuilds.org scripts, the -current ones with my slackbuilds.org's git fork for current.

if you're using slackware64-13.1 (like in your profile), could you please try this package?

EDIT: it seems it doesn't work also here on -current, so I suspect it's an old problem fixed incorrectly.

the problem seems to be the commit linked above, tried to revert it and the battery level seems to be correctly detected here, also if it still doesn't calculate recharging time.

if you are using current (x86 or x86_64) I updated the packages for that: can you try them?

if you are on stable, try using the packages linked above or build with gnome-vfs (no need to update glib2).

have a look here for the list of packages needed?

That was where I built from, using the stable tree. I saw some errors when I shut down, I'll try to check the logs when I get back to that machine.
EDIT
here is the output or dmesg

ConsoleKit.
you need also polkit and lxpolkit (or polkit-gnome as an alternate of this last).

but this means you have not done a slackware full install: consider those kind of setups as unsupported.

I did do a full install. That is the only kind I ever do. I don't know how these aren't present.Consolekit seems to be all that is missing:
[code]bash-4.1$ whereis polkit
polkit: /usr/man/man8/polkit.8.gz /usr/share/man/man8/polkit.8.gz /usr/X11/man/man8/polkit.8.gz
bash-4.1$ whereis consolkit
consolkit:
bash-4.1$ whereis consolekit
consolekit:
bash-4.1$ whereis lxpolkit
lxpolkit: /usr/libexec/lxpolkit /usr/share/lxpolkit
[code]
Where can I find consolekit?

Code:
grep ck-list-sessions /var/log/packages/*
/var/log/packages/ConsoleKit-0.4.3-x86_64-1:usr/bin/ck-list-sessions
maybe you're missing an "s"?

Session1:
	unix-user = '1000'
	realname = 'Danny Chamness'
	seat = 'Seat1'
	session-type = ''
	active = TRUE
	x11-display = ':0'
	x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
	display-device = '/dev/tty1'
	remote-host-name = ''
	is-local = TRUE
	on-since = '2011-02-14T19:15:08.748081Z'
	login-session-id = ''

usb thumb drive is still not loading however.
