Elementary OS splash screen has dissapeared after installing nvidia drivers, is there an easy way to restore it? I´ve read some tutorials for Ubuntu but they're hard to follow and results weren't guaranteed. Thanks for your help.


Step 1.

Use ctrl+alt+f1 at login screen to open the root terminal there you use

"apt purge nvidia" to remove the nvidia driver and go back to the noveau driver. after that reboot

Step 2.

To install the current stable version of the nvidia driver by writing the current commands in either the root terminal or

"sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers" to add the driver repository to the list

sudo apt-get update to update your repository list making the repository active

After that use sudo apt-get install nvidia-387 to get the latest driver.

If that doesn't work redo step 1.
