Description Russell Robinson 2009-07-13 22:44:38 EDT
Description of problem:
The notification in the panel is a bit confused - it thinks the battery is 100% charged when it's critically low.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Seems to be consistent

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run on battery until it gets low
2. Read the notification
Actual results:
Reverse of what it should be.

Expected results:
Low is low, high is high.

Does installing the latest gnome-power-manager and DeviceKit-power packages in updates-testing (and then rebooting...) fix the problem?

Sorry, I can't provide any more information.

I've had to switch from Fedora to Ubuntu to get a reliable platform.

The battery monitor in Ubuntu 9.04 seems to work perfectly.

I've also switched hardware (from HP Pavilion to Dell Latitude).

I hope that helps.
