I installed the GPU drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics adapter using the installer file from NVIDIA, but I want to remove them and switch to the drivers being provided by the Ubuntu repositories. How can I completely remove the currently installed official (original) NVIDIA drivers?
sudo nvidia-installer --uninstall, this command completely removes the NVIDIA drivers. Do not forget to remove configuration files, such like
/etc/X11/xorg.conf and those ones which blacklist the
nouveau drivers, usually located in the
/etc/modprobe.d folder. Depending on your specific setup, other configurations may need to be reverted too. Reboot the system afterwards.
$ nvidia-installer --advanced-options ... --uninstall Uninstall the currently installed NVIDIA driver. ...
