Battery issues

Hello everyone, I encountered an issue with the last version of Endeavour (Artemis Neo).
Suddenly the batter indicator in the bottom bar doesn’t update anymore. This is a huge problem, cause I don’t know where the battery is low, and I don’t know if the laptop is plugged or not. There isn’t much information about this, at least not for this OS. Any help would be very useful, thanks.

DE? Machine specs? I seem to remember a problem with KDE, mentioned on Reddit. Working for me though.

Things don’t suddenly break unless it’s a hardware failure.

What did you change before it stopped working? Package updates, configuration changes, … ?

Hello, I’m using xfce below is a list of my laptop specs:

Hello, well maybe “suddenly” isn’t the correct word. I make an upgrade of the system (using pacman -Syu) and when I rebooted the system this issue started to appear.
So I downloaded the latest version of the OS and make a clean install but the problem persists. That’s why I concluded it is because the last version of Endeavour (Artemis)

Rolling release so there is no OS version only ISO version for the ISO and installer but installed system has no version…

extra/xfce4-battery-plugin 1.1.4-1 (103.0 KiB 477.4 KiB) [xfce4-goodies] 
    A battery monitor plugin for the Xfce panel

Is what you use?

i do not see reports on that upstream (arch also none)

I would go to check journal around BAT and xfce4-battery
journalctl --since "30 minutes ago" or use grep:
journalctl --since "30 minutes ago" | grep BAT

Hello, this is what I got with those commands: (and yes I’m using xfce4-battery-plugin)

so it looks like it’s the plugin having an issue updating data only as the system is showing it right?

Do you already tried removing the plugin and reading it ? checking the configs also?

Exactly, the only “update” that the plugin gives is when I turn on the machine, and it freezes until I reboot the system.

The only thing that I proved is reinstall the plugin, and it doesn’t help. And about the configuration I don’t know what to modify exactly

me also i do never used it :wink: and i do not have xfce4 installed on my notebook

I don’t speak italian but I think somebody here has the same problem on Plasma:

In which case it’s likely to be either a new bug or a regression, and this sort of thing sounds very much like a kernel regression.

It’s worth seeing which packages were updated (e.g. using paclog or looking in /var/log/pacman.log) to gather evidence, and trying a different kernel to see if that helps. If it’s a kernel regression then waiting for the next kernel update will likely be all you need to do.

we see that from the system side the battery itself is available and showing up info:

POWER_SUPPLY_VOLTAGE_MIN_DESIGN=15200000
POWER_SUPPLY_VOLTAGE_NOW=4645000
POWER_SUPPLY_CURRENT_NOW=1454000
POWER_SUPPLY_CHARGE_FULL_DESIGN=4240000
POWER_SUPPLY_CHARGE_FULL=3341000
POWER_SUPPLY_CHARGE_NOW=2342000

But indeed it is worse a try to check if running LTS kernel will solve it –

mmm maybe I’ll try switching kernel and see if that works, anyway thanks for your time buddies

yes i would try … also it mainly looks like an issue with plugin to me… i can go investigate now (installing xfce4 on my notebook) to see if it is a general issue or hardware related…

not general issue… and i do not see settings that could change to not show the power … so best bet is to try LTS kernel…

yep, this works :blush:.
I hope in future versions Endeavour could fix this for all kernels, but for now is working using the lts kernel

Just in case someone is having this issue, just run:
sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

and then
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

after that just reboot the system and select the lts-kernel when you start the system

I hope this helps, thanks, see ya dudes.

you can also set LTS to boot per default in two ways… changing GRUB_DEFAULT=0 to GRUB_DEFAULT=2 (to boot from 3. entry) 0=1 1=2 2=3 :wink:

or change to use the last selected entry and use this per default automatically by adding these two lines into /etc/default/grub and regenerate grub.cfg:

GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true

but i was wondering why it do not put the last installed kernel as default already ?

And what @jonathon already mentioned as “regression” is that it will hopefully get solved with the next kernel update and only happen with the current main kernel on some devices… so nothing EndeavourOS can or will change as we do not maintain kernel package we got them directly from the arch repositories.
