Bug Description


during Beta testing I wanted to install the propritary Nvidia drivers on my machine, but Jockey doesn't offer them for installation, just an empty window saying "No propritary drivers are used on this system" (see screenshot).

If launched via Terminal I get a Python backtrace which I am also attaching.

Kind regards,

I was able to install Nvidia current driver plus VPAU support and Binary Xorg driver (everything done from jockey selecting the first two options). But the system keeps telling me that jockey-text has crashed (even though I'm not using it!). Hope it helps!
