Bug Description

When a new user has finished his Ubuntu setup and boots for the first time, the "Hardware drivers" should pop-out by itself (or a little reminder, among the lines of "You can use system>Administration>Hardware Drivers to install closed-source drivers for your hardware").

It can be annoying for the new user to find out that his expensive video card is not working properly, or maybe the wireless isn't working, so he should be shown where to search for those drivers in the first place.

affects: ubuntu → jockey (Ubuntu)

when jockey finds any properietry driver is installable it gives the notification and there comes an icon in notification applet. if someone dont want to use properietry driver/want to install later this can cause annoyance.

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. However, a paper cut should be a small usability issue , in the default Ubuntu 9.10 install , that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. So this bug can't be addressed as part of the project.

we want to increase usablility not annoyance. its not mandatory for user to install properietry drivers.and also hardware related things that does not effect every one are not papercuts
For further info about papercuts criteria , pls read > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "invalid" ONLY in the papercuts project.
