    Additional Drivers reverts Driver option choices.

    Hello!
    An unexpected behavior seems to be popping up while trying to enable restricted drivers for my wireless card.. I go into settings, software & updates and choose Additional Drivers. I find the driver I want (the only one there actually ) and check it and click Apply. I get prompted for authentication and authenticate as usual. At this point it seems to be trying to enable it (It starts saying "Applying Changes" with the progress bar) and then quickly stops with the driver option set back to "Do not use this device".

    I find it weird that this is happening because it worked perfectly fine while using the LiveCD to install..


    Any ideas?

    You're right... I must be tired or something because I also figured out what was causing the issue.
    Where would Ubuntu get these packages from? I plugged my LiveUSB back in and installed the driver manually and everything worked out. ^_^ I guess I should go to sleep..
    Happily running 13.04! "It's only an apt-get away!"
