I just upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 today. I noticed that in display settings it recognizes my system as laptop and I am actually running a desktop with a viewsonic monitor. How can I fix this?

lol.Marco glad your up to par.I actually think I filed this as a bug I cant remember I have filed so many.Can I take points away for ignorance?Marco,do you think this question isnt ubuntu related?I mean it never happened with windows did it ?I m not saying windows was without its faults but I seem to think this particular issue amongst many just might be related to ubuntu ? – robert Jun 12 '12 at 3:55
Is this just for points here or does anyone have any answers lol – robert Jun 12 '12 at 3:57

This is a bug. You can confirm that your computer is not really being identified as a laptop by running:

sudo laptop-detect -v

To help get this fixed, I suggest you update the bug report with further details, or log into Launchpad and register the fact that the bug also affects you:
