Default Charging iAudio 7 in Ubuntu

How does one charge the i7 in Ubuntu? I plug it in fine, it says connected, I can add stuff, etc. But the screen says USB connected. The manual says the screen should show a charging icon thing...?

Side Note: I Got My iAudio 7 Today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have normal charging selected from the menu and you are connected to a powered USB port it will say USB connected with a changing screen - it is charging. If you plug it into a charger with a USB adapter then it will show a charging icon.

USB power specification is for no more than 5.25 V and no less than 4.75 V (5 V±5%), IIRC there is no differance using linux. While connected, try turning it off to see if you get the charging icon (naturally leave it connected). Although, I have found that if you run it until the battery is fully discharged, a computer USB connection will not charge it. What I use in this situation is an old Motorola mini USB A/C charger, which works fine to fully charge it again.

btw, congratulations again on the new i7, I’m sure you’ll love it

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just had the same problems, and I could solve them by issuing:

Code:
udisks --detach /dev/sdb
on the command line after I had plugged it in (not mounted). I did it as root user. The 'USB connected' symbol stopped rotating and the 'Charging' symbol appeared.
