Battery applet broken in E200HA

March 28, 2016 — BarryK
Another failure to report. The power applet in the tray is supposed to show battery status.

Looking at the source for /root/Startup/powerapplet_tray, it reads /proc/acpi/battery/, however this is empty.

Note, I read recently that /proc/acpi/battery is deprecated, that same info is found in /sys/class/power_supply/ -- but that is empty also.

So, have broken battery monitor and broken sound on my Asus E200HA baby laptop.

Running kernel 4.4.6 now. I will compile 4.6 when it is released, in the hope it has fixes for my laptop.
