Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

When I have the laptop plugged to the AC power, the battery indicator shows me the real value of percentage of my battery level.

Nonetheless, when I unplug the AC power and use the battery of the laptop, the battery indicator tells me that the "laptop battery is charged" even though it is not fully charged. It happens always, till the laptop shuts down because there is no battery left.

In other words, the battery indicator works fine with AC power but it does not when working with the battery of the laptop.

I am using ubuntu 10.04 (64 bits) with a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop.

Yes, it is related to the bug 467825 but with the new ubuntu Lucid Lynx
distribution. Moreover, I did not find a solution either in that bug or
others related. Thanks for the information though! I hope someone find the
solution!

I have this same issue with a Compaq v3000la and an Acer aspire one, but in my case the battery indicator starts working correctly every time I suspend or restart.
