Nvidia’s Older Driver on Linux Mint running Cinnamon

Thanks to those participating in Google+, I was able to find a way to revert back to a previous working Nvidia driver (see previous post of issues with the Nvidia driver update). I found this post on Google+ and the outcome made me very happy. I simply downloaded Nvidia driver version 295.33 from Nvidia’s site, booted into recovery mode, logged into ‘su’ and ran the following command from the directory the driver resided in:

sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.33.run

And now I am able to boot into Cinnamon again, which makes me super happy. I’ve been working in Mate for over a week and have really missed working in Cinnamon. All is well, now.
