kubuntu-full shouldn't recommend graphics drivers

Bug #881643 reported by Philip Muškovac

kubuntu-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Currently kubuntu-full recommends (and thus installs by default) nvidia-current, fglrx and other drivers.

At least nvidia-current has it's own libGL and thus replaces the MESA one. If you're now using a system with an intel graphics card you essentially loose openGL as the intel driver can't do anything with the libGL from nvidia.

Driver installing should please be left to jockey.
