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.
