    They both use the same back-end with different interfaces.

        If you install debian package of nvidia driver via apt-get, It will automatically download and install its dependencies (pre-requisites). But if you want to install directly from nvidia installer, I recommend first install linux-headers or kernel-headers or kernel-source package, whichever exists for your distribution.

              If you have successfully installed nvidia driver and this is your /etc/X11/xorg.conf made by nvidia-xconfig, then it is ready to start graphics with this driver. Why do you want to change something?!

                If you have too problem writing English, write in Russian then use Google Translate to convert it to English.

                      Why do you repeat others' comment with a few modifications?!!
