Bug Description

[Test Case]
1) sudo touch /var/run/reboot-required
2) sudo apt install umockdev gir1.2-umockdev-1.0
3) /usr/share/ubuntu-drivers-common/fake-devices-wrapper software-properties-gtk --open-tab 4
4) click the Restart button

You should observe a dialog either confirming that you want to restart or with a restart button. It depends what desktop environment you are running.

Original Description
The fix for bug 1241210 only works in gnome-session based sessions. Let's make sure that the driver restart button works on Xubuntu and Lubuntu.

Hi Brian! With bug 1693032 being marked as fixed today, I just wanted to make sure this fix would still be considered before Bionic goes stable.

  * After installing proprietary drivers provide the
