Command-line interface doesn't work without X

Bug Description

The command line interface in jockey-gtk for enabling and disabling drivers doesn't really work. It requires an X display to be present, so it can't be used in scripts.

For example, trying to change the display driver with --enable without an X display results in a segfault:

test:~# jockey-gtk --enable xorg:nvidia-180

Segmentation fault

Occurs in Ubuntu 9.04 with jockey-common version 0.5-0ubuntu10 and jockey-gtk version 0.5-0ubuntu10.

This bug was fixed in the package jockey - 0.5.3-0ubuntu1

jockey (0.5.3-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Add a text frontend, 'jockey-text'. Although the GTK and KDE frontends
      can be launched and scripted command line, they are dependent upon
      DISPLAY being set. This text frontend has the ability to run in a true
      text only environment. (By Mario Limonciello) (LP: #394688)
    - Ported to polkit-1.
  * debian/control: Update policykit dependencies to policykit-1. Drop
    policykit-kde, since it does not exist so far.
  * Merge bug fix from trunk: Move X-KDE-autostart-phase: field from menu to
    autostart .desktop.
  * kde/jockey-kde, kde/ Reintroduce code to run
    frontend as root, since there is no KDE frontend for polkit-1 yet.
  * data/handlers/ rmmod b43 and friends before enabling wl, so
    that it will work on the fly. (LP: #393689)
