If you're running a 64-bit system, run:

    update-alternatives --force --set x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/

This will set the default OpenGL library back to Mesa. Using a custom Xorg configuration file, you can still utilize the nvidia drivers. Note that Optimus is not supported for Linux so you've to use a solution like Bumblebee or hybrid-windump.
