Bug Description

After shoving in a new Nvidia GeForce 8400GS (and trying the proprietary drivers out), the Screen Display icon is completely missing from the Systems Settings on my machine.

I'd kinda like it back. :/ Please let me know what other info you may need.

For me, a *ton* of applets go missing on upgrade to 15.04.0+17.04.20170314-0ubuntu1 ... Downgrading to 15.04.0+17.04.20170213-0ubuntu1 brings them back.

I can confirm that downgrading from 15.04.0+17.04.20170314-0ubuntu1 to 15.04.0+17.04.20170213-0ubuntu1 makes the Display Icon return.

Okay, so after relogging into a fresh session, all my applets were restored, except for the one lamont's missing. Maybe I was running a unity that was too old to report as "unity7"? Anyhow. His bug is clearly this typo here:


Will upload a fix for that.
