Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Moving from karmic to lucid, I lost my battery management (in system/preferences/). I only have the AC tab. My battery is not detected at all :

cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/info
present: no

modprobe battery
FATAL: Module battery not found.

I have tried with a liveusb and it is exactly the same thing.

If I unplug the AC, battery works.

It was fine with karmic

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of GNOME Power Manager is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.
