I'm trying to install CUDA on my Ubuntu Budgie 17.10, with a GTX 1060. I'm stuck on this part of the instructions:
I've pasted the example into the specified file. When I try to run
sudo systemctl enable nvidia-persistenced
The unit files have no installation config (WantedBy, RequiredBy, Also, Alias settings in the [Install] section, and DefaultInstance for template units). This means they are not meant to be enabled using systemctl. Possible reasons for having this kind of units are: 1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's .wants/ or .requires/ directory. 2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has a requirement dependency on it. 3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer, D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...). 4) In case of template units, the unit is meant to be enabled with some instance name specified.
For reference, here's the exact content of my file:
[Unit] Description=NVIDIA Persistence Daemon Wants=syslog.target [Service] Type=forking PIDFile=/var/run/nvidia-persistenced/nvidia-persistenced.pid Restart=always ExecStart=/usr/bin/nvidia-persistenced --verbose ExecStopPost=/bin/rm -rf /var/run/nvidia persistenced [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
I don't know anything about these files, which is why I'm just copying and pasting - so I'd be happy if you could tell me what's wrong!
