Default Re: (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension in GDM, startx loads fine

I have ran the following, but still thew same error after...

Code:
sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-legacy nvidia-glx-new nvidia-settings xserver-xorg-video-nv

wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/190.32/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run -O NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run

sudo install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run /usr/src

sudo ln -fs /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run /usr/src/nvidia-driver

sudo sh /usr/src/nvidia-driver
I tried entering my BusID to xorg.conf, but still won't load...

Code:
sudo lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Quadro NVS 140M (rev a1)

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Configured Video Device"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "Quadro NVS 140M"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling many times, I have done the following:

Code:
sudo envyng -t (to uninstall nvidia)
On reboot, exit gdm

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-legacy nvidia-glx-new nvidia-settings xserver-xorg-video-nv
sudo aptitude purge $(dpkg -l | grep nvidia | awk '{print $2}')
reboot again, exit gdm

Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/190.32/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run -O NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run
sudo install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run /usr/src
sudo ln -fs /usr/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.32-pkg2.run /usr/src/nvidia-driver

sudo sh /usr/src/nvidia-driver
To install the driver, gdm still fails to load! startx works.

Tried different driver versions, tried

Code:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-glx-new
Current extensions:

Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/
total 2396
