Need Help Troubleshooting CUDA 10 install over SSH

I have a remote machine wit a brand new GTX1050 installed in it. Using Ubuntu 18.04. I am trying to use it as an offsite Meshroom computer for photogrammetry. Meshroom requires CUDA >3.0 for calculations. I have used these instructions to install CUDA: https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-linux/index.html#ubuntu-installation Trying to install 10.0 When you do that and install cuda, I assumed it would install the nvidia driver as well. I guess the other factor is I am doing this all over ssh in terminal. I even compiled all the samples. Also blacklisted nouveau.

Problem nvidia driver is not showing up.
No /dev/nvidia

GPU shows up

$ sudo nvidia-smi
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

./deviceQuery

Any ideas?

Some more info. I just installed inxi and this is the Graphics output over ssh:

Any idea why it would be going to Nouveau even though I have it black listed?

$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
