Ubuntu – Uninstall NVidia drivers?


I've upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 (in order to be able to upgrade to 11.04).

It seems like the current graphics drivers are incompatible with the latest kernel I have.
I don't know if I have installed drivers only from apt or if I have downloaded. I think it's only apt thou.

How do I uninstall all Nvidia drivers and revert to the default drivers? I've used at least 2 different multi monitor setup utilities, but it was last year so I don't remember much.

What config files do I need to change so that the default drivers works?

Try renaming the xorg.conf file and reboot:

sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia

To remove the drivers:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia-settings nvidia-current
