I've followed this tutorial (with the following adjustments below) to install v. 331.67 nVidia driver. But get nvidia-settings (NVIDIA X Server Settings) empty...

Then, before restart the PC, I make a xorg.conf in the nvidia-settings.

The driver make Unity don't start right. So I installed nvidia-331-updates via apt-get and restarted the PC again.

After that, the Unity works fine. But the nvidia-settings gets almost empty...

Empty nvidia-settings

Can someone help !?

You installed the driver from ubuntu repositories over a driver you manually installed.

Follow that tutorial to uninstall that driver.

Then remove nvidia-updates with sudo apt-get purge nvidia-331-updates nvidia-settings.

Reinstall Nvidia current driver with sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 nvidia-settings

Is there any safe way to manually install (from the *.run) nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 14.04 without crashing Unity !? –  Victoralm Apr 20 at 22:55
    
@Victoralm I have done this and it worked until I updated kernel. –  Cornelius Apr 21 at 8:41
