As I asked last time please don't top post, it is the convention on

Thanks.

You *still* have not answered the question.  If you run the battery
down then, running Ubuntu, plug in the charger and leave it running
for a couple of hours, then boot to Windows does it show that the
battery is charged?  If so then the battery is charging when running
Ubuntu it is just the indicator that is not showing this.  Please make
sure you answer this question, it is difficult to help people who do
not answer questions.

Also usually laptops have an led on the laptop itself that shows when
charging.  For example on mine this is off when the charger is not
connected, orange when it is charging and blue when it is charged.  If
yours has this then you may be able to see that it is charging when
running Ubuntu.
