Bug Description

Binary package hint: brltty

On upgrade from karmic, there is this diff:

--- /etc/default/brltty 2009-06-14 08:48:21.000000000 +0200
+++ /etc/default/brltty.dpkg-new 2009-11-17 06:12:38.000000000 +0100

-# Set RUN_BRLTTY=yes to start brltty at boot time. You may need to

I never touched that file myself.

I can reproduce the bug.

- Vanilla installation of Kubuntu 9.10 directly from the CD inside a VM.
- Confirm brltty is installed (sudo apt-get install brltty)
- sudo sed -i 's/karmic/lucid/g' /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
- the user is prompted to update /etc/default/brltty

I am new to Triaging bugs. I'm marking the bug as 'confirmed' but let me know if I missed something.
