I found that cuda toolkit is available on the 16.04 repo, and installed it using apt-get.
‘sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit nvidia-cuda-dev’
I didn’t go for the run file or the deb file because it was only listaed as compatible for ubuntu 15.04. My problem is in installing the cuda compatible driver. I cant find a way to download/install the correct driver. What is the best way to get the correct driver installed? Is it in the repo, and I cant just find it?
