  Battery Absent On HP Split 13x2 Laptop

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have an HP Split 13x2 laptop with Ubuntu Mate installed.

  dmesg shows "ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT0] (battery absent)".

  The battery icon shows "No battery present".

  ...I'm only able to run on AC power.


  I have tried:
  * Default and adjusted settings in BIOS.
  * Live versions of Ubuntu, Lubuntu and Ubuntu Mate.
  * Release 15.04 and 14.04 for all flavors above.
  * Installed ACPI.
  * Installed batmon.
  * Installed ibam.
  * Added to grub default boot line "acpi_osi=", then "acpi_osi=!Linux" then "acpi_osi=Linux".

  I have not tried recompiling the kernel, as several posts state the
  recompiling didn't work for them if not on a Toshiba.


  I'd really like to get this working...the laptop is needed for work
  done in areas where AC power won't always be present.
