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