gnome-applets (battstat-applet?) support for ACPI?
I'm currently playing with Sid on a laptop; it's an el'cheapo Powernote, but
seems to run gnome 2.2 quite nicely. It doesn't support APM, but it supports
ACPI fine under 2.6.0-test5 (loading the correct modules, I can see battery
status under both /proc and with ACPI battery tools, like wmacpi).
The battstat-applet in the gnome-applets page doesn't seem to support ACPI; at
least, not on this - I'm getting 0% shown at all times. Googling around shows
me that I should be able to right click on the applet, properties, and tell it
to use battery 0 instead of 1, which I'm guessing could also be the issue, but
I don't see anything there (or a relevant key in gconf-editor).
