Yes. (It seems "Newbie" does mean "clueless."
) Thank you for the suggestion. I did not even know there was a section of Hardware Drivers
until your post sent me looking. I appreciate the "heads up."
Am I understanding you correctly that if I deactivate the proprietary driver in Hardware Drivers,
Update Manager will no longer attempt to overwrite the generic default 8.10 Ubuntu video driver during future automatic updates?
