On Ubuntu 16.04, I initially had the nvidia-375 driver installed. However, this was giving me some strange pixelated borders on windows, as in here.

So, I followed the instruction from the top answer, which involved deleting all nvidia drivers, and then installing the nvidia-367 driver. To do this, I first ran 'sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*'. After checking "Additional Drivers" in "Ubuntu Software Centre", I noticed that there were no longer nvidia drivers, as expected. Then, I ran 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-367'.

However, after this, the pixelated borders still remained. I checked "Additional Drivers" in "Ubuntu Software Centre", and there were now two drivers installed: nvidia-375 and nvidia-340. But I only asked my system to install nvidia-367...

So, why did it install these two additional drivers, and not the one I requested it to install? Neither of these two drivers seem to solve the problem with the pixelated borders.

Now there is no the 367 Nvidia driver in Ubuntu repos.

The nvidia-367 package still exists, but it points to nvidia-375.

A possible option is to install nvidia-367 from ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa, but since there is a "newer" package in the official repos, you will need to use Synaptic to pick a version.
