Envy (software)

Envy was an open source application that was written in python and pyGTK. It was intended to make the process of installing and uninstalling ATI or Nvidia proprietary graphics drivers on Linux distributions easier. Envy automatically detected the correct graphics card, installed the appropriate driver from online software repositories and configured the X server.[1] However development stopped in February 2010, due to lack of time on the developer's part and it no longer works with current Linux versions.[2]


Early Development

The Envy project was started by Alberto Milone, an open source enthusiast. Envy Legacy was developed and maintained by Alberto Milone himself, however, EnvyNG (Envy's Next Generation) is developed and maintained collaboratively by Ubuntu developers and Alberto Milone.[3]
