Cuda Toolkit Clarification

hello guys

I’m not a developper but i need to install CUDA in a Ubuntu WS. I tried to follow a guide. I have installed the NVIDIA Driver anf then i tried to install cuda 10 with the deb Package.

I saw in the ubuntu repository there is the following package: apt install nvidia-cuda-toolkit

Could you tell me if this package is an alternativa of the deb package downloaded from NVIDIA or an additional package that i can install for the cuda envitonment ?

it’s an alternative, maintained by someone besides NVIDIA, so I wouldn’t be able to say much about it.
