    hardware drivers manager (jockey-gtk) problems

    hardware drivers manager won't open, it just quietly dies. the output is this:

    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/jockey-gtk", line 300, in <module>
        sys.exit(u.run())
      File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/jockey/ui.py", line 269, in run
        self.ui_init()
      File "/usr/bin/jockey-gtk", line 93, in ui_init
        self.update_tree_model()
      File "/usr/bin/jockey-gtk", line 240, in update_tree_model
        is_enabled = handler.enabled()
      File "/usr/share/jockey/handlers/nvidia.py", line 51, in enabled
        devices = self.xorg_conf.getSections('device') 
    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'getSections'
    i found it in a bug report(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ey/+bug/215027) and tried the fix offered in the 3rd reply down. it seems to work for everyone else, but when i tried it and rebooted, i still get the same error. this is frustrating, i've been trying to fix this since last night and i can't. does anyone know what to do??

    this is 8.04, fully updated.

    Actually, I just tried the fix again, and it worked.

    Possibly remove all installed packages, and purge all their files.
    Enter this into the terminal.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge jockey-gtk jockey-common
    then reinstall

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk
    Next, Change line 60 in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/jockey/xorg_driver.py from
    self.xorg_conf = xorgconfig.readConfig(OSLib.inst.xorg_conf_path)
    to
    self.xorg_conf = xorgconfig.readConfig(OSLib.inst.xorg_conf_path)[0]

    To do this enter in the terminal,
    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/jockey/xorg_driver.py
    Go to line 60 and add in the rquired text.

    And thats that
