I've followed the steps of the NVIDIA CUDA Installation Guide and I've installed CUDA without warning or errors.

Problems arrive when I try to compile the samples provided in the CUDA toolkit. Citing the dedicated section in the previous guide: "You should compile them by changing to `~/NVIDIA_CUDA-8.0_Samples`

and typing `make`

".

The output includes this:

```
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lnvcuvid
```

After reading related questions "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcudart" and this on Stack Overflow, I checked whether lnvcuvid exists and apparently the file is missing.

However, I don't know where to safely get the file from so I'm stuck. For what it's worth:

- nvcc is already added in PATH.
- In usr/local I have either cuda and cuda-8.0 folders. I'm not sure if this is normal.
