Ubuntu – Kubuntu 16.04 Driver Manager broken


The driver manager is hanging on the "Collecting Information about your system" phase it's not progressing past this point.

Is any one else experiencing this, if so are there any known fixes?

Best Answer

I found a workaround on the BinaryDriverHowto page, under the Installation without X header.

You can run sudo ubuntu-drivers devices to see the detected drivers, and use apt to install them yourself. Here's the example as listed on that page:

sudo ubuntu-drivers devices
== /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0 ==
