Ubuntu – How to get the “Your battery is broken” message to go away

notificationpower-management

Every time I turn on my computer, I see a message saying something like:

Your battery may be old or broken.

I am already aware that my battery is bad. How do I suppress this message?

Best Answer

Maybe these instructions will help you to get rid of that message.

Added instructions from the link, Alt+F2, then type in gconf-editor.

Navigate to /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/low_capacity and untick the value.

Or a single command:

gconftool --set /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/low_capacity --type boolean false
