Ensure that you have written all the tags to the photos on your laptop.
Check preferences that "Write Metadata to File" is enabled.
If not, create a dummy tag and set it to ALL photos on your laptop.
Then, enable Write Metadata to File, and remove this tag.
This would force f-spot to write all metadata to all photos.
Then just import the photos (from your laptop) to your desktop.
