Package "ubuntu-drivers-common"

This package belongs to a PPA: Mint Upstream

Name: ubuntu-drivers-common


Detect and install additional Ubuntu driver packages
This package aggregates and abstracts Ubuntu specific logic and knowledge
about third-party driver packages. It provides:

- a Python API for detecting driver packages for a particular piece of
hardware or the whole system.

- an "ubuntu-drivers" command line tool to list or install driver packages
(mostly for integration in installers).

- a PackageKit plugin for WhatProvides() for types MODALIAS and
HARDWARE_DRIVER, to do the same queries as above through the PackageKit API
(for using in non-distro specific GUIs). This works with aptdaemon's
PackageKit compatibility layer (python3-aptdaemon.pkcompat) and with
PackageKit's apt backend, but _not_ with the PackageKit aptcc backend.

- some NVidia specific support code to find the most appropriate driver
version, as well as setting up the alternatives symlinks that the
proprietary NVidia and FGLRX packages use.
