Talking Detecting battery life on my laptop


I am a noob using Linux. I just recently installed redhat 9.0 on my acer travelmate 800LCi, and I wanted to find out how much battery life was left before I would have to recharge it. I didn't no where to start looking. Basically I want a battery status page, I guess thats what you would call it.

Can someone help please.

Thank you!

I got the same notebook.

Right click on the bar at the bottom of the screen, then Add To Panel --> Utility --> Battery Charge Monitor, and it displays the charge.


EDIT: I'm an idiot too, I didn't read all your post. Sorry.
