Bug Description

I know this should problem be reported upstream, but I'm not sure where sorry...

Yesterday I installed Mint. I started to download and install the restricted drivers, but since my internet connection is playing up lately, it was taking rather a long time. After about half an hour, the progress bar was about 10% complete, so I pressed cancel. Pressed it multiple times but it didn't work. The entire process completed.....

Using Linux Mint 10 64-bit DVD

Though it may be Jockey doing the installation behind the scenes, any addition of a Cancel button would require changes to Ubiquity.

Does this bug apply to any of the currently supported releases (i.e. Maya, Nadia, Olivia, or Petra)? If not, this bug should be closed.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running only once:
