Uninstall the NVIVIA driver

I’m just about to install the newest NVIDIA driver from my card. This one: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/67567/en-us However, since this has completely ruined my system before, I know that there is at least a 50% chance that it won’t work. And if it doesn’t work, a pretty fat chance that it’ll create a mess for me, or in the worst case ruin my system completely.

So - if/when the driver doesn’t work - how can I uninstall it afterwards?

If you install the driver using the .run installer, then you can uninstall it again by running “sudo nvidia-uninstall”. If you install it via your Linux distribution’s packages, then you’ll need to refer to your distribution’s instructions on how to uninstall packages since it’s different for different distributions.

Ah, thanks a lot :-) It’s the .run installer I’m using.
