As far as I know you are *not* supposed to have both, so you should 
purge the package nvidia-glx-legacy. You might want to restore that file 
first, otherwise dpkg will complain about a missing file.

P.S. The newer nvidia-glx is also a solution, but make sure you remove 
all traces of the other driver as well.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
