comment I have messed up my DPI settings under KDE (XUbuntu 13.04)
Hi, Sorry. It is Xubuntu with KDE installed as well. Just have found the solution: I have removed the $HOME/.kde folder and all the KDE settings were reset to normal.

comment How to decide on the right Nvidia driver based on the Linux Kernel version?
Cool. Thanks for the information. So to install the latest and the most stable and official Nvidia driver, I will need to do this: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current ?? This will get the driver from a trusted and tested source, right?

comment How to decide on the right Nvidia driver based on the Linux Kernel version?
Thanks Takkat. This was very helpful. So I have added ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa to my sources, I will follow your suggestion for not jumping on those and installing something from there. But I still do not see the Nvidia driver amongst the updates being broadcasted by them, despite the fact they are listed in their archive? I will add x-swat as well now.

comment How to decide on the right Nvidia driver based on the Linux Kernel version?
Nvidia does not appear in the Additional Drivers section by default. At least not for me. On the other side, I guess all the GL and XServ functions need to be turned off in order to install the driver, meaning: It needs to be done through a terminal with X off.

comment How to decide on the right Nvidia driver based on the Linux Kernel version?
For example, I can see a new Nvidia driver (319.17) on xorg-edgers. How different is that to the 319.17 listed on the official NVidia Linux Driver page?

comment “sudo service lightdm stop” will go into a blank screen
Hi, thanks for the help. I messed up my Linux badly by installing an Nvidia driver that was not compatible with my Kernel. Then I got a Kernel-Driver mismatch and could not really recover. Just re-installed Xubuntu 13.04 and started from scratch. This is tricky and I do not understand how to do this right.

Thanks: "sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop" kills X Server but I am immediately left with a blank screen, not terminal, just I like I am dropped into a blank screen when I hit CTRL+ALT+F1. Something is fundamentally broken. :(

So? Any driver updates etc. I make under Recovery Mode's terminal will have effect on the actual SYS, right?

Non of these commands work :( It just returns command not found.

comment “sudo service lightdm stop” will go into a blank screen
Thanks, this is another strange part. All my virtual terminals are a blank screen, black, nothing. Then when I go CTRL+ALT+F7, the X Windows comes back. I do not understand.
