Bug Description

I am on Intrepid with Jockey 0.5alpha1 (source downloaded from Launchpad and rebuilt). It seems to early that Apport can report bugs on this Jockey version (tells that it is not a genuine Ubuntu package).

I have done the following test sequence:

I have run the command

dbus-send --print-reply --dest=com.ubuntu.DeviceDriver /GUI com.ubuntu.DeviceDriver.search_driver string:"printer_deviceid:MFG:Samsung;MDL:ML-1610;CMD:GDI"

to pretend that a printer setup tool detected a Samsung ML-1610 and asks Jockey for getting a driver for it. Jockey gets the information that splix is suitable from OpenPrinting and asks the user in a little window to confirm. I have rejected.

Now I run


and it remembered that it offered splix to me earlier as it showed the splix driver. I selected the splix driver and installed it by clicking the button at the lower right. This worked fine. I closed Jockey.

Then I started jockey again from the same console using


splix was listed and I selected and uninstalled it with button on the lower right. This dis not work. I got the following traceback (and the window stayed open):
