i downloaded the nvidia driver, and it seems to be messing things up. webcam programs dont work, blender isnt working. i need to revert to the default one.

Any help!?

this one doesnt make any since to me. How do I revert from the Nvidia driver to the unrestricted driver?

You should be able to disable it in System Settings > Addition Drivers

Otherwise you can do it on the command line like this:

sudo jockey-text -d xorg:nvidia_current
