2010-05-26 00:08:54 Ivan Zorin summary "No Battery" detected for laptops with multiple batteries battery status can't handle with multiple batteries simultaneously
2010-05-26 00:14:05 Ivan Zorin description I have a Dell D630 laptop with two batteries: one main system battery and another in the media bay (DVD) slot. When both batteries are connected Battery Status thinks the machine is always on AC (plug icon) and there are no batteries (when you click on the icon you see "No Battery". When one battery is connected everything works fine. Here's the output of dbus-send: ~ -> dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.UPower /org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.UPower.EnumerateDevices method return sender=:1.16 -> dest=:1.193 reply_serial=2 array [ object path "/org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/line_power_AC" object path "/org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0" object path "/org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT1" ] Two batteries is a fairly common case for laptop users so it would be great if Battery Status could handle this use case. At some laptops with two batteries battery status can't correctly provide information about both batteries, if it's plugged in simultaneously: in such cases battery status displays information only about one battery. Two batteries is a fairly common case for laptop users so Battery Status should handle such use cases.
