Description András Manţia 2004-03-07 21:41:18 UTC
Version:           2.0 (using KDE 3.2.90 (CVS >= 20040117), compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.1 (SuSE Linux)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.21-144-default

With CVS HEAD from 05/03/2004 the laptop battery applet is completely unusable. With a fully charged good battery it says that I have 2 minutes left (it says 2 minutes even after the charged percent dropped to 90%) and logs out from KDE as soon as I get logged in. :-( This when I had
the System State Changed in Low Battery Warning and Low Battery Critical set to None. So actually there are two problems here.
 The second problem might be an update problem from KDE 3.1->3.2+. I hope that the values for the possible selection (Logout/System Power Off/None) were not stored as a number, and now the same number means something else, although it seems so, as after setting to somewhere else and back to None, it doesn't log me out. But it still reports that I have 2 minutes left.
