Bug Description

Helping a user on IRC where ubuntu-drivers failed to detect

0a:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 850M] [10de:1391] (rev a2)

Looking at the source-code I noticed that


is not matching on class 0302 (despite the associated fake entry comment for debugging suggesting it)

The work-around is to amend the code thus:

sudo sed -i 's/0300/(0300|0302)/' /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/NvidiaDetector/nvidiadetector.py

Running ubuntu-drivers now matches the 3D Controller
