Battery indicator icon broken? (also theme & icon questions)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 5, 2013
Hi. I've been using Xubuntu for about a week now and I have a little problem. My battery status icon is a placeholder. I'm on a desktop, so I don't always see a battery indicator icon, but when I plug in a something like an iPhone, this is what I see:
That little rectangle with the no sign.
I know I can turn off the power indicator permanatly, but I'd rather have an indicator icon that works and looks congruent with the rest of its' set. Can anyone help me? Im running Raring Ringtail on a Dell Optiplex 700 series. Latest updates installed. This is a fresh system install. I had 12.04, but I made a Raring Ringtail install disc and selected 'erase everthing and install xubuntu'. I had this same problem in 12.04, too.
*I looked in the usr/share/icons and all the battery icons seem to be there. I also found that if I set my power settings to always display an icon, the 'battery full' icon shows up just fine. But when I plug in my phone, I get the broken placeholder icon again. I
Battery Life Ubuntu Vs. Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2009
I've always just accepted that my battery life is pretty crap on my laptop, but I booted windows the other (hasnt been done in about 3 months) and when I usually have about 35 minutes at 40% charge, I had an hour under windows. Does anybody know why this could be?
Burning or converting ccd, img, sub to CD?
location: linux.com - date: August 3, 2009
Ok so I'm the kind of person to do his reasurch before asking questions but now I'm just stuck.
I can't really find a way to burn a CDimage that's made from cloneCD so if anyone has an idea I'd apreciate it.
Just as info I'm running xubuntu/ubuntu desktops and I've already tried using ccd2iso and K3D to make an iso. I've also tried finding a .deb package for ISOmount but no luck.
Best Linux distro for optimize battery consumption (Asus EeePC)
location: linux.com - date: March 28, 2013
I'm very new here and I'm not sure if here is the proper site to post this question (I apologize if not).
I've using linux for a couple of years (Mint) trying to move from windows to Linux. I've an old Asus Eeepc 1005HAB with XP and I've installed LinuxMint Isadora (Gnome) with dual boot. I'm really really happy with the performance of the system, but the problem is that the battery consumption is very hard: with windows the battery last more than 2 hours, but in Linux it hardly reach the 90 minutes (without using video and/or audio). It's truly annoying because I really DO LIKE LINUX!!!
I've investigated several solutions. For example, moving to LXDE I've noted a drastic increase in battery life, especially when using powernowd to configure processes and eeepc applet (don't sure if jupiter and eeepc applet obstaculizes each other).
But I'm thinking about moving to a distro that be focused in optimizing the battery use, mainly by including built-in kernel configurations a

I am finding conflicting reports of Ubuntu's battery life feature on the CR48. Is anyone familiar with how much the battery can be maxed to on Ubuntu vs the Chrome OS 48?
Running Gnome 3, battery notifications?
location: linux.com - date: August 5, 2011
I just started running Gnome 3. At first I hated it, but in a short amount of time it's grown on me and I'm very impressed.
It functions well in Natty, no issues so far. The design team outdid themselves.
I'm running it on my laptop though. The only thing that bothers me are the notifications.
I get "Battery Discharging 99%"
"Battery Discharging 98%"
So on and so forth every few seconds.
I read something about a power manager in the G-conf files, but I can't find that specific file.
Is anyone else running Gnome 3, and know how I would resolve this?
Thanks in advance.

After customizing the hell out of my Ubuntu install and trying several themes, I'm actually trying to get back to a pure Ambiance theme; however, no matter what settings I change in gconf-editor, the buttons remain on the right side. I've purged the light-themes package and reinstalled, as well as logged-out and restarted the entire computer to no avail.
Am I missing something?

12.04 has your battery life improved?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2012
One thing I have seen touted in regards to 12.04 is improved power management.
Since Oneiric, I haven't seen any improvement at all and battery life is still much shorter than either Windows 7 or Kubuntu.
