How does one remove installed Nvidia drivers? At the moment I am using the Nouveau driver but am thinking Nvidia is causing problems as I have previously used them

sudo apt-get --purge remove `dpkg -l | grep nvidia | awk {'print $2'} | grep -v nvidia-common`

Will remove all the proprietary Nvidia driver packages.
