Jetson Nano & Nsight Eclipse Edition?

Does Jetson Nano support Nsight Eclipse Edition?
The CUDA Toolkit documentation indicates that ‘nsight’ should be in /usr/local/cuda/bin but there is none.

Where can I find Nsight Eclipse Edition?

You need to install Nsight Eclipse on the Ubuntu host machine. Then you can cross compile the apps and remote debug the applications on Jetson. Please check

Hi There,

The instructions on that page don’t seem to work.

The cross stuff is not available in cuda-repo-ubuntu1804-10-1-local-10.1.105-418.39_1.0-1_amd64.deb

“sudo apt-cache search cuda-cross” returns nothing.

The only target available in /usr/local/cuda/targets/ is x86_64-linux

Can anyone help me getting nsight working on Ubuntu for the Nano?

Many thanks



Please follow the instructions here to install the cross platform packages:

You need to install the bits using “sudo apt-get install cuda-cross-aarch64”


Thanks for the reply.

Sorry I didn’t explain myself properly.

cuda-cross-aarch64 is not contained in cuda-repo-ubuntu1804-10-1-local-10.1.105-418.39_1.0-1_amd64.deb, so apt-get install doesn’t find it. You can use apt-cache search and it also doesn’t find any of the cuda-cross components.

I got around this by using sdkmanager to install everything and that worked fine.



Hi Andy,

Can you describe the steps for installing NSight Eclipse using sdkmanager?
Or, if available, share the link to the procedure?

I appreciate your help and thank you in advance,


Hi Sidney,

The download page is here:

The deb file is here:

Instructions here:

I just selected everything for the install, when you get to the bit to flash the Nano just cancel it the two times.

Good luck :)



Hi Andy, thanks for the quick reply and the information. Have a great rest of the day!

Hi Andy,

I followed the installation instructions for the sdkmanager but it didn’t work for me. Did you experience the same? If so, how did you resolve it?

$ sudo apt install ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb

Hi Sidney,

No, it worked fine here.

I just had a search and found this:

So maybe try with:

sudo dpkg -i ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb && apt update -f



Hi Andy,

I used the links that you provided, but got the same errors as Sidney. Also tried this:

sudo dpkg -i ./sdkmanager_0.9.11-3405_amd64.deb && apt update -f

but got this error:

dpkg: error processing archive ./sdkmanager_1.3.0-7105_amd64.deb (–install):
package architecture (amd64) does not match system (arm64)

Did you do something different to install de SDKmanager?

Thanks in advance,
