So, today I downloaded the latest Nvidia drivers from their website. I uninstalled what I thought was the previous driver and restarted my computer. I was prompted with a full-screen terminal and ran the .run-file that I downloaded but it told me that I had to remove the Debian drivers. I typed in
dpkg --get-selections | grep nvidia
in the terminal and these came up:
glx-alternatives-nvidia libgl1-nvidia-alternatives libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64 libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 libglx-nvidia-alternatives libxvmcnvidia1:amd64 nvidia-alternative nvidia-glx nvidia-installer-cleanup nvidia-settings nvidia-support nvidia-xconfig
All of them are marked with "install" except for nvidia-glx which is marked "deinstall"
To make everything work again. Am I supposed to purge all of the listed packages and run the downloaded nvidia-file?
Thanks in advance!

Uninstall the packages that were installed then.
Then stop the server and run the downloaded nvidia script.
Alright, thanks for the help but how do I stop the server?
