Help installing cuda on linux mint

I have been trying to install cuda on my linux mint laptop with a gtx 660 m card, but i am running into an issue.

I started with installing the nvidia drivers. Using nvidia-smi i get the following:

±-----------------------------------------------------+
| NVIDIA-SMI 331.38 Driver Version: 331.38 |
|-------------------------------±---------------------±---------------------+
| GPU Name Persistence-M| Bus-Id Disp.A | Volatile Uncorr. ECC |
| Fan Temp Perf Pwr:Usage/Cap| Memory-Usage | GPU-Util Compute M. |

| 0 GeForce GTX 660M Off | 0000:01:00.0 N/A | N/A |
| N/A 54C N/A N/A / N/A | 196MiB / 2047MiB | N/A Default |
±------------------------------±---------------------±---------------------+

±----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Compute processes: GPU Memory |

GPU PID Process name Usage
0 Not Supported

±----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
Therefore i assume that the drivers are installed correctly and in operation.

When i then try to install cuda with ´sudo apt-get install cuda-6-0´ i get the following:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
cuda-6-0 : Depends: cuda-drivers (>= 331.00) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Now i am a bit stuck since nvidia-smi tells me that the correct drivers are installed while apt-get disagrees. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

CUDA 6 requires 331.62 or newer. Try a newer driver. This question may be of interest:

and/or use one of the runfile installers:
