[SOLVED]Help: can't uninstall nvidia drivers

I'm having a lot of problems lately with my resolution and before using nouveau which im using now I installed the nvidia drivers from the official repository. I was not able to find any documentation on how to uninstall completely
.
I've tried sudo pacman -R nvidia nvidia-driver, but only nvidia is uninstalled and the nvidia-driver I get this errors

archuser@archws ~ % sudo pacman -R nvidia-utils                  <19:13>
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: lib32-libgl: requires libgl
:: libva: requires libgl
:: mesa: requires libgl
:: mplayer: requires libgl
:: nvidia: requires nvidia-utils=260.19.36
:: qt: requires libgl
:: xorg-xdriinfo: requires libgl

Re: [SOLVED]Help: can't uninstall nvidia drivers

The packages you need to remove are nvidia and nvidia-utils. If you get such dependency warnings, you can force the remove with pacman -Rd nvidia nvidia-utils. You can then install xf86-video-nouveau and nouveau-dri if you want.

Don't forget to install libgl after -Rd nvidia-utils.
