linux nvidia

I hosed the nvidia configuration on my linux box when I tried to set up a second monitor.  I kept trying to fix things by reinistalling the driver and running “nvidia-xconfig” like a prompt in nvidia-settings told me.  But each time I tried to run nvidia-settings, it told me that it did not appear I had the nvidia driver loaded.  When I needed to do was run “sudo nvidia-xconfig”, then run “sudo nvidia-settings”.  Once everything was set up, I was able to save the new configuration file (since I was su now).
