I am following the official installation guide for Ubuntu. I first installed the cuda-repo package (cuda-repo-ubuntu1304_6.0-37_amd64.deb), which adds the NVIDIA repository to apt. Then it gives when installing that:

$ uname -a
Linux debian 3.14-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.14.10-1 (2014-07-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1304_6.0-37_amd64.deb
$ aptitude update
$ aptitude install cuda

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 nvidia-settings : Depends: screen-resolution-extra (>= 0.12) which is a virtual package.
 nvidia-331 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 which is a virtual package. or
                       xorg-video-abi-12 which is a virtual package. or
                       xorg-video-abi-13 which is a virtual package. or
                       xorg-video-abi-14 which is a virtual package.

I cannot find any package named screen-resolution-extra via aptitude search. And there is only a xorg-video-abi-15 in the repository which cannot be installed.

How can I solve this if I want to install CUDA via package manager?

  • Installing Ubuntu packages on a Debian system isn't such a good idea. Try this : wiki.debian.org/CUDA – schaiba Jul 8 '14 at 17:37
  • @schaiba I have both an NVIDIA GT650M and an Intel HD 4000 on my laptop. Do I need to resort to bumblebee if I want to install the driver separately? – ziyuang Jul 8 '14 at 17:44
  • as far as I know, no. but my experience with bumblebee is fairly limited, so maybe someone else can answer. – schaiba Jul 8 '14 at 17:48
