comment Blender 2.75, nVidia GTS 450 & CUDA, everything is there, and Blender swears why?
If I understood the post correctly, you have installed the Nvidia drivers directly from Nvidia's site. And now your problem is that Ubuntu is showing you both version. If that's the case, then you have done a bad thing. You shouldn't download and install the drivers directly unless you really really know what you are doing. Instead you can use this ppa for a more updated drivers: launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa Check out this answer for little more details: askubuntu.com/a/61433

comment Cant Downgrade php5.5 back to php5.3
@graceancestor It seems the uninstall script is trying to use php5dismod to disable mods before removing them. php5dismod was not available in 12.04, and it was added in 13.10. I'm not sure how to fix it, but if this info is of any help, maybe someone else knows how to fix it.

comment How do I : Set up Folder Alias configurations to html page links - Apache2 (2.4.n)
IMO, best practice is not to modify any package files. It would be better to create a new configuration file, or a new virtual host file depending on your actual need and setup. But between those 3, I'd say 000-default.conf is the best candidate.

comment Where to place my local website starting with the 2.4.7 version of apache2?
@Darshana Default configuration in apache2.4 doesn't allow apache to access anything outside /var/www/html. Putting your site anywhere other than in that directory (or its sub-directories), will give you a 403 error. You need to add a <Directory /path/to/your/site> directive to your VHost configs with a require directive in it.

When in the login screen, can you login in a tty (By pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2)? You can go back to the login screen with Ctrl+Alt+F7.
