I installed the ppa graphic-drivers and nividia-390, now it turned out I need the CUDA packages installed instead. The CUDA-part might be easy, just be doubleclick the .runfile... but:

What exact commands do I have to make, to uninstall the drivers and reinstall the current CUDA? Should I plug the screen back into the mainboard before?

(I read some tutorials on this, but I dont really get it totally....)

  • Try this one: askubuntu.com/a/1025949/231142 – Terrance May 7 '18 at 18:22
  • It is good practice to link the tutorials you have tried so that others don't tell you to look at things you have tried – Jeff May 7 '18 at 19:15
  • havent tried any tutorial yet, because the last time I tried to install CUDA, I was stuck in a login loop that I had to reinstall Ubuntu (tried ANY possible tutorial to end the loop)... for I just installed ppa and 390... it's not just two commands and then install CUDA, is it? – PortWein May 7 '18 at 19:47
  • The link I posted in the above comment does not use the graphics-drivers ppa. It uses the actual NVIDIA developers ppa for the installation of CUDA 9.1 which in turn installs the nvidia-390 drivers with it. Best to just copy and paste those commands to a terminal window. – Terrance May 7 '18 at 20:32
  • works... :) So what about kernel issues, can I just run sudo apt-get update or do I have to take care of things? Just got a kernel update waiting in the update-manager, got 4.13.0-39-generic by now... – PortWein May 8 '18 at 14:11

Seems to work, thank you terrance!
