I'm not sure whether this is a Software or Hardware problem but I suspect the former so I'm posting here.
Reading another thread inspired me to check my battery status on my little pet Asus EeePC netbook which runs LMDE Xfce. System Profiler tells me there are no batteries when there's clearly an icon with correct information in the panel.
No one else seems to have reported this problem here. Does something need adjustment for System Profiler to find the battery or is this a bug?
