    Lost GUI after installing experimental NVIDIA drivers

    I have just installed the experimental NVIDIA drivers throught the Additional Drivers dialog in Xubuntu 12.04, and after doing that I lost my GUI.

    Is there an easy way of reinstalling the recommended drivers without re-installing, or am I stuck without a GUI? (key word EASY)
    Feel free to add me on Skype for a quicker response, but tell me you're from the forums!
    Read the following if you want, but I'm warning you: it may be complete nonsense!

    You should be able to remove the offending drivers even if you can't start the desktop environment at the moment, as long as you are able to login:
