How do I unblacklist my display driver?

I used this command to blacklist nouveau and now I want to unblacklist it.

# echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf

When I do that it says no such file or directory found, but when I search the directory it shows up in the directory.

It's best to give the exact commands you used, plus the output that you received, copied and pasted directly from the terminal. We've found that paraphrases often leave out clues as to what's going wrong.

You must be starting from another directory
Change directory to modeprobe.d and remove it thus
Code: Select all
root@debian:~# cd /etc/modprobe.d/

ls shows it's there:
Now you're in the directory
Code: Select all
root@debian:/etc/modprobe.d# ls
blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf
root@debian:/etc/modprobe.d# rm blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf
