How can i downgrade the Nvidia driver in the easiest way using Synaptic or the restricted driver manager?
It seems that the current Nvidia drivers(260) have some kind of bug messing up the desktop, and later also the colors in LiveTV, if the frontend dies playing LiveTV, or if LiveTV quits to the main menu.
Dont happends all the time, but very often. And the only solution then is to reboot the computer. On the mythtv maliinglist they suggested downgrading to 256, but i dont know how to do that.

Is it possible to get that version in to the restricted driver manager to make it easy to switch driver?

In case anyone is wondering, he's referring to this http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/467286 post.

According to JYA, the 260x drivers are total crap. However, it seems only possible to use 195 or 260 drivers using Synaptic.
