I installed proprietary Nvidia drivers to my laptop. It broke my screen brightness keys and plymouth. I want to return back to Nouveau and fix plymouth screen. What should I do know?

What do you mean by "broke plymouth" please? (If it's a horizontal bar at the bottom of the screen it isn't broken.)

Normally Plymouth should start automatically and the horizontal bar theme or whatever shows up. If I press Esc key then I should see dbus(?) messages. But it shows directly messages. And I want to go back the Fedora 18's original Plymouth theme. I think reinstalling the plymouth and theme will solve my problem here.
