Moderators, please move to another location if need be.

Just did a dist-upgrade on my laptop.

The battery monitor no longer indicates;

a) that a battery is present - when AC power is disconnected

b) charge state, no change indicated when AC power is connected

c) battery power level (% charge) no longer displayed, possibly related to a)

d) in System Settings / Power management / Global settings the "Advanced Battery Settings" tab is greyed out.

Is anybody else experiencing similar problems?

Perhaps the transition to KDE 4.6.3 is still in progress ?!?

Cheers.

you want to install upower.
once you're at it, install udisks and polkit-kde-1 as well

Thanks Devil, that worked a treat.

Granted it's been some time since I have done a dist-upgrade on my laptop.

The following packages were the only ones flagged for removal.

      Code:
 The following packages will be REMOVED:
  kappfinder kdelibs5 kdepimlibs5 libakonadiprivate1 libknotificationitem-1-1
  libsmokekde4-2 libsmokeplasma2 plasma-widget-quickaccess


A check of the new installs revealed that some removals had been superceded.

      Code:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  akonadi-backend-mysql docbook-xml docbook-xsl freespacenotifier fuse
  libakonadiprotocolinternals1 libcanberra0 libcln6 libdbusmenu-qt2 libdiscid0
  libdlrestrictions1 libdmtx0a libkatepartinterfaces4 libkcalcore4
  libkcalutils4 libkcmutils4 libkemoticons4 libkephal4abi1 libkidletime4
  libkipi8 libkonq5abi1 libkprintutils4 libktorrent3 libkwineffects1abi1
  libmagickcore4 libmagickwand4 libmusicbrainz3-6 libnepomukutils4
  libplasmaclock4abi1 libpolkit-qt-1-1 libprocesscore4abi1 libpython2.7
  libqalculate5 libsolidcontrol4abi1 libsolidcontrolifaces4abi1
  libtaskmanager4abi1 libweather-ion6 linux-headers-2.6.39-1.slh.4-aptosid-686
  linux-headers-aptosid-686 linux-image-2.6.39-1.slh.4-aptosid-686
  linux-image-aptosid-686 multiarch-support python2.7 python2.7-minimal
  sgml-base sgml-data virtualbox-guest-utils xml-core


As such I hadn't anticipated any problems.

Edit: Nice now hibernate works perfectly when the battery reaches a critical level.

This is the one feature that didn't work correctly with Power Management prior to the dist-upgrade.

I think that I have some problem that is related to this post.
I don't know exactly when the problem occurs, but I noticed that it always occur after I hibernate the system to RAM. If I restart the system it works again.
The problem is that the KDE Battery monitor doesn't update the status of the battery(it displays only one value - freeze last value).

Did someone notice something like this ?

Thanks
