#list + remove the old stuff related to nvidia
sudo dpkg -l | grep nvidia
#`apt-get remove` on whatever comes out of the line above.

#install the packages which this depends on.
apt-get install nvidia-glx-180-dev nvidia-180-modaliases nvidia-180-kernel-source nvidia-glx-180

#remove all the kernel objects currently installed.
export k=`uname -r`
sudo rm -f `find /lib/modules/$k -iname nvidia.ko`

#chmod 777 on the file belwo if necessary.
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.22-pkg1.run

#restart gdm.
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

Hope this helps.
