Nvidia Graphics driver lines across screen

Post by ushilives » Sun Aug 25, 2019 2:19 pm

Hi i am a complete noob. I changed the graphics driver from open source to recommended so now when i boot up i just get red and green lines going down the screen. How do i revert back to open source graphics driver?

Driver Manager should offer both the NVIDIA binary driver and the Nouveau (open-source) driver as options. Just choose the one you want, and reboot.
