I have a question, and I don't know if it's a problem with my hardware or not. The fact is that my computer is being recognized by Juno OS as a desktop computer and not as laptop. I wonder why, because everything works well and nothing is missing (battery indicator etc.).

I have a hp pavilion 13 convertible 2 in 1. I'm not sure whether more information is needed in this case or not, waiting for answers and requests for more info about my hardware. Thank you.

Short answer

Convertibles were not being recognized as laptops, but were falling back to a generic "computer" icon. This has been fixed in the latest release of the icons and will show up in your "Operating System Updates" in AppCenter soon!

Longer/technical answer

The "About" screen in System Settings uses a local service to populate some information, like the hostname and the icon name to use to represent the hardware. That service was correctly reporting computer-convertible as the icon name. However, our icon set did not have a computer-convertible icon, so it correctly fell back to use the computer icon, which is represented by an all-in-one type computer. We've now added a symlink from computer-convertible to computer-laptop.

  • Thank you for answering me, you're right It has been fixed just now, I received the icon update and now it shows up in the about section. Thank you. All in all the Juno OS is quite impressive good job Elementary. – user16597 Dec 6 '18 at 18:46

I don't think it's a problem, I've tried some notebook and the same goes, I think it's normal. I will continue testing on other laptops. but apparently it is normal. don't worry.

  • I thought that too, but wasn't sure, thank you for the answer. – user16597 Dec 5 '18 at 15:53
