I have recently started using Ubuntu 16.04 Creative Studio & was trying to install an NVIDIA Geforce gt710 driver over the Ubuntu suggested driver (I had to, as Ubuntu was not accepting the (auto prompt) Nvidia driver & the Nouveau driver was running by default).

I downloaded the latest Nvidia driver (-375.66.run) from the NVIDIA site separately. Everything went fine after a couple of tries from help instructions I found online, I went to shell, disabled desktop manager, installed driver, updated intramfs, & (I thought) my Nvidia driver was installed & running. But software that requires GPU acceleration does not detect the card.

I see Manually installed driver in the Additional Drivers Settings and under System Settings, the proprietary NVIDIA & Noveau drivers are locked.

Does this sound like a faulty driver installation? What might be the correct process to get it running?

Blendr System Settings under User Preferences has a feature where I can assign the compute device to be the CPU or GPU. After installing the driver for the GPU, the system settings does not prompt me to use the GPU instead of the CPU as Blendr does not seem to detect the GPU. I did not try anything to make it detect the GPU other than install the GPU drivers.

  • As per your comment, I have edited the question. Please check if the problem is clearer now! Thanks! – Angshuman Mishra Jun 27 '17 at 11:29
  • Could you please edit your question to include the output of uname -r, find /lib/modules -name nvidia\*.ko\*, lsmod | grep nvidia, and lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA as well as the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log? Thanks. – David Foerster Jun 27 '17 at 13:04
  • The system replies have been added as per the commands you provided. Waiting for your feedback! Thanks! – Angshuman Mishra Jun 29 '17 at 16:13

    The nvidia driver is clearly installed. If you installed it properly then it appears that your question is really "How do I get Blendr to utilize my Nvidia GPU?" You may find this useful. – Elder Geek Jul 2 '17 at 13:26
