Since I plugged in my new Acer TFT ubuntu 12.04 detects it as "Laptop". But it's a Acer S231HL. Can you help me to fix this problem?

This is a minor bug which does not affect the operation of your monitor or system in any way. It should hopefully be fixed via an update in the near future.

Do you have a link to the bug report? – Eliah Kagan Jun 22 '12 at 11:30
@EliahKagan, here's one for gnome-desktop, but I'm positive there is/was one filed against X and another one (or maybe the former again) referencing Nvidia drivers. – izx Jun 22 '12 at 12:34
