Bug Description

Binary package hint: hwdb-client

Version: 0.6.9 (on feisty beta)

Steps to reproduce:
1 Start hwdb-gui (Applications -> System Tools -> Ubuntu Device Database)
2 Click help
3 Click "Getting Started" section
4 Follow instructions under section "2.2.2. From Device Manager" where it says "Choose System → Administration → Device Manager"
5 Look under System -> Preferences and still not find "Device Manager"
6 Start looking through all the menu options for "Device Manager"
7 Get confused
8 Give up
9 Tell people ubuntu sucks ;)

Solution:
Change "Choose System → Administration → Device Manager" to "Choose System → Preferences → Hardware Information" and avoid everything from step 5 onwards - especially 8 and 9 :)

OT: Although I like the new menu item name, I think it should be under Administration.

The help file is really outdated. Seems like there is no Device Manager and no Hardware Information either..

I just hope you won't tell people that Ubuntu sucks because of this.. :)

I think this can be closed "WONTFIX" given that last supported release hwdb-client was shipped in was dapper and hwdb-client-gnome is only in hardy.
