Desktop configuration not preserved when changing drivers

Bug #325954 reported by Dražen Kačar on 2009-02-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
jockey (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I had problems with my laptop freezing and thought nvidia-glx-180 might be responsible, so I tried to deinstall the driver via System->Administration->Hardware Drivers. That calls jockey-gtk, I think.

It removed the driver, but also some of my desktop configuration which it should not have changed. For example, I disabled Login sound, but it played after the reboot. Also, the number of my workspaces went from configured 3x3 to 1x2 (that's the default, I think). I understand it was necessary to disable desktop effects, but it should not have reset other desktop configuration to default.

This is with Ubuntu 8.10, all packages current. jockey-gtk version is: 0.5~beta3-0ubuntu6.1
