I have an Acer Aspire 6930G and the problem is the same. But if you
execute this command: cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state, it shows you
that the battery is connected and also makes the battery indicator to
update itself and show the correct power state. But the power scheme
does not change, so you must manually change it to powersave. I am using
Kubuntu 9.10 as my primary desktop.
It also happens in Ubuntu 9.10 with the gnome battery indicator (same
notebook), but in Ubuntu, the system changes automatically to the new
Under Opensuse 11.2 (same kernel version and in the same notebook) the
battery indicator and power schemes work correctly.
Maybe when you do the cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state it makes an
internal trigger to inform the applications about the real power state
(it makes the battery indicator to show the state) but KDE does not
change the power scheme.
