I have installed Fedora Core 1 on my laptop, install went fine. However i cant get my battery monitor applet to work. If i try to add it to my panel i get the following error:
The Battery Charge Monitor applet appears to have died unexpectedly
Reload this applet?
Does anybody have experienced the same problem? Any help is appreciated.
What happens when you reload it?
Battery status monitor v2.4.1 is running fine on my ThinkPad A22p. You should have at least apmd-3.0.2-20 installed, and probably acpid-1.0.2-5 as well. I'm running both acpid and apmd services 'on' in runlevels 3-5.
When I run apm at a command prompt I get:
$ apm AC on-line, battery status high: 100%
And thanks to Vladimir Kosovac, once I ran:
# chmod u+s /usr/bin/apm
running 'apm -s' as myself suspends my laptop very nicely.
