how to remove nvidia-glx installation, return to previous graphics mode

Bug #290629 reported by RG on 2008-10-29

This bug report was converted into a question: question #49368: how to remove nvidia-glx installation, return to previous graphics mode.

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-restricted-modules-envy-2.6.24 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In an attempt to improve my graphics, I installed the nvidia-glx driver and enabled it. This did not recognize my graphics card. How do I uninstall this driver, and return to my original graphics mode?

The command:

     lspci | grep VGA


     00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51 [GeForce 6150 LE] (rev a2)

Also, I am not able to edit files in the /etc/X11 directory, by mv or cp commands to return to any of the xorg.conf.failsafe.* files.

Thank you,
