I have successfully ported Envy from Bash to Python (and it seems to work just fine).
Anyhow I’m posting here on my blog to let you know some of the features you will see in Envy 0.42
I need your help with the latter feature as I can’t test all the Nvidia cards available on the market. If you want to help you can post on this thread on the Ubuntu Forums:
“Envy” is a script written in Python which will download the latest Nvidia driver or the Legacy driver (for older cards) from Nvidia’s website and set it up for you handling dependencies (compilers, OpenGL, etc.) which are required in order to use the driver on Ubuntu Linux.
