How can I get rid of the gnome bad battery warning at startup?my laptop battery must be bad but I don't need to purchase another battery.

Re: fedora laptop bad battery startup warning at startup

Either use gconf-editor (the nice GUI one) and navigate to /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/perhaps_recall and set to false or use gconf2...
Code:
gconftool-2 --set --type bool /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/perhaps_recall false
Long description of this key is:-
Quote:
If we should show the recalled battery warning for a broken battery. Set this to false only if you know your battery is okay.
Which sounds like what you are asking for...

Re: fedora laptop bad battery startup warning at startup

Thanks.. I get this warning in Gnome (Ubuntu and Fedora) and not in KDE (Fedora) which makes me wonder if the battery IS dying or not.

I am suspecting the battery since I get about 20 minutes of time on it.

Its not a folder

It's a config entry in the gconf configuration database... the gconf2tool line interfaces with the gconf configuration database to set the parameters.

If you use gconf-editor, it is the "low capacity" key that need to be unchecked. The perhaps-recall didn't do anything on mine.

Re: fedora laptop bad battery startup warning at startup

I have this problem. I have also found that although my battery may be 98% charged, but if it is not 100% charged when I unplug the laptop the whole system suddenly says laptop battery critically low computer will be suspended. This is despite the fact it wouldnt run out for another 40 odd minutes. How can I disable fedora suspending my system on low/pseudo-low battery? It is irritating as I am perfectly capable of managing my own use of the battery power.
