Bug Description

12.10: Jockey-gtk (additional drivers) shows itself as not being installed in my system, yet when I go to install it, it says I need to install it, so I do, yet when I go to open it, it says that jockey-gtk is not installed. I am able to install jockey-kde and run this instead.

Am happy to provide vnc access if someone wants to look themselves at the bug.

Jokey-gtk does not exist anymore on Quantal. Its functionalities were merged in software-properties.

So this may rather be a bug in command-not-found: it should not suggest to install the jockey-gtk package.

Why does the package exist if there are nothing in them?

Jockey has been superseded by software-properties, which now handles
