How do I uninstall manually installed Nvidia drivers 310.14 and revert to Noveau. I have Ubuntu 12.10.
Yeap, was going to say what Karasu said. Just to add some information. If the driver you downloaded is called for example NVIDIA-Linux-x86-310.19.run then you would run:
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-310.19.run --uninstall
If you want to get the help for your Nvidia driver then do this:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-310.19.run --help or a more extended version for it:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-310.19.run -A which shows you the uninstall option:
--uninstall Uninstall the currently installed NVIDIA driver.
There are a couple of other nice options in case you want to use them like:
-a - Accept Licence
-s - Silent Mode
-q - no questions
-i - Driver information
--update - Check Nvidia site and update to the latest
First you need the installation file. Then put it in your home folder, open a terminal and type
sudo ~/installation_file.run --uninstall
Then restart your computer and your drivers will be completely uninstalled. If Unity won't load after the uninstallation, right click-->change desktop background, then click on "All Settings" on the left-top corner of the window. Then go to Software sources and install a proprietary driver from the list.
