IT WORKS! Now I've got two battery meters, and they both work. Thank you, oh, thank you!

Take note, kilakev.

Mine is still not working. I tried the acpi=force boot option into the grub kernal line and now the battery monitor doesn't even show up. When i try the #asapm command i get this:

# asapm
asapm: open_apm_device_file: The file does not exist.
asapm: Neither ACPI nor APM are available!

in lsmod i get a "ac" and a "battery" but no acpi or apm modules.

I tried adding -acpi to the jwmtray but stil no luck.

anyone have any tips?

Open a terminal and type modprobe apm, then restart X. Again, make sure your fans work normally if you keep it this way.

Unfortunately your laptop was manufactured at about the same time that the acpi specification came out, so I'm not sure if it has acpi or apm or both. Looks like Lanin's has acpi.

I did the modprobe apm and the battery monitor shows up but it still only shows the ac icon lit up even when it's running on battery....

i'm gonna try to find out if i have an acpi battery...

Anyone knows where Dougals modified source went?.
I can find the pet (asapm-3.1.4-dougal-1.pet) and the unmodified source (asapm-3.1.1.tar.gz) but not the source actually used (for asapm in P412 & P431 afaik...).
