    DId you miss Gutsy. They offered this feature in the 7.10 release and were starting to implement into 7.04.

    I used both… the notification never appeared on any of my systems. Granted, I was virtualizing it much more (painless dual boot removed that need), but even when native I never saw it.

    I’m sure this has been in-the-works for awhile, but this is the first version it actually worked for me.

    It never came on the updates for me but it popped up with a bubble saying that you were using restricted hardware and it could download the drivers for you. With virtualizing it wont show because Ubuntu has built in alot of that stuff. But its strange that it never came up with that before when u had it natively

    Yeah, I know exactly the bubble you’re talking about. Never saw it in native on 7.10.

    Once you enable the restricted-license drivers, they will update/manage themselves inside of Update Manager… that’s why I was referencing the update part.
