    How to change to older Nvidia drivers

    Hello, I am running pop os 20.04 and have had issues with steam play ever since moving to the 460 Nvidia drivers. Is there a simple way of moving back to an older driver such as the 450. There are known issues with the 460 and some games and prior to moving to it, every game on steam play worked like a dream, so would like to reverse back to the 450 drivers.

    If the drivers are in the repo, just remove the new ones, install the older ones and put a "hold" on the one you want to keep using synaptic or apt-mark.
    Drivers are tied to the kernel version, so expect breakage.

    open additional drivers and install the version you want.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    Or you can upgrade to 470 https://launchpad.net/~graphics-driv...ive/ubuntu/ppa

    BTW How did you install 460 and how did steam break? The driver from Nvidia's cuda repo does not support 32 bit and hence steam breaks. https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...ux/issues/5778

    If this is the same issue then just have to install driver from sources other than the cuda repo (ppa above or Ubuntu's standard repo or system76's ppa, and last, though not recommended, Nvidia's run file) Cuda can be installed separately from the local installer (without sudo and without installing the driver)
