Install and uninstall NVIDIA driver in ubuntu

 
Install NVIDIA Driver
 
First you need to install the linux kernel headers:
 
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
 
Then you will need to run dkms to remove the old nvidia kernel module:
 
sudo dkms remove nvidia
 
Then run:
 
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
 

this should make it install correctly, so all you need to do is run
 
sudo nvidia-xconfig 
 
and reboot the system.
 
If you get an error about the module version, run: 
 
sudo dkms build nvidia


 
Uninstall NVIDIA Driver
 
To uninstall NVIDIA driver run the following command
 
apt-get remove –purge nvidia-current
