I am a Linux newbie.

I am dealing with cuda 8 and Ubuntu 16.04 for 10 hours and it just does not like to work. Please HELP!!!

I messed up during my cuda8 installation and had to uninstall and delete cuda. I used the following commands to uninstall the cuda completely.

sudo apt-get remove nvidia-cuda-toolkit
sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove nvidia-cuda-toolkit
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-cuda-toolkit 
sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove nvidia-cuda-toolkit
rm -rf  /usr/local/cuda*
rm -rf  /usr/local/cuda

The problem starts from here: Now im trying to instal cuda again via:

sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-rc_8.0.27-1_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cuda
sudo reboot

but no matter what I do, the cuda folder does not appear in

/usr/local/

anymore!!! When I check to see what version I have via

nvcc --version

it shows cuda 7.5. and for some reason cuda 8 is not even recognized and also the folder cuda do not appears. Is it because I removed the folders from the root? I have no Idea :(

Any suggestion or help would really be appreciated!!
