Lately NVIDIA added repository for Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 14.04. Recently I hit problem with missing dependencies for
libcheese7 libraries while installing latest CUDA 6.5 on clean Ubuntu 14.04. Remedy to this can be found on askubuntu. So, the complete set of commands is below.
At first, add CUDA repository package:
wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1404/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_6.5-14_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_6.5-14_amd64.deb
Now, install CUDA:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade # install nvidia driver sudo apt-get install nvidia-current # at this point you need to reboot computer # remove broken packages, beware: some GUI parts of your system will be broken or removed sudo apt-get remove libcheese* # install CUDA sudo apt-get install cuda # restore broken GUI parts sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
By the way, libcheese is library for video and photo capturing, including enumeration of capturing devices.
