Computer Says "No Batteries Available"


I have fairly new laptop with KDE Manjaro installed in it. But the battery is not being detected for some reason. I’m very sure it’s still working because when I pull out the charger, the computer doesn’t go off. Typing in acpi in terminal yields:


Any thoughts on what could be the problem? The laptop also dies a lot faster than it should.

I also ran inxi --full --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host. Here’s the output.

What is the laptop?

Try reinstalling powerdevil.
Also check in journalctl if battery is getting detected or not.
It will say something like “ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery present)”

Intel Core i5-1035G1 @ 8x 3.6GHz
Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics (ICL GT1)

Not exactly this but quite similar.

Reinstalling it didn’t work. I edited the question above to show that the computer recognizes that the battery is present on some level.

It looks like a very common problem with KDE (KDE Plasma not detecting Battery Discharge / Laptop Issues / Arch Linux Forums, found a few threads on Kubuntu as well).
I think the best way forward will be filing a bug report with KDE.

Alright. Thanks then. I’ll look into it.
