I am running my Ubuntu OS in text only mode after recently having some problems trying to update the Nvidia driver.

I would like to use apt-get to download an older version of the nvidia driver for my machine however most of the examples, such as this one, are in the format:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Version Information:
Running lspci -nn | grep VGA tells me I have a GF104 GeForce GTX 460 OEM rev a1

Additional Information
I'm told that the version 310 (from here) might do the trick but can't seem to get it on the command line.

Can you please help me identify versions from the terminal and then run install on that version?

Thanks for your time
