CUDA not working on Ubuntu 18.04

Hello Everyone!

I tried to use CuArrays with CudaNative

on ubuntu 18.04
with CudaToolkit release 9.1, V9.1.85
with Nvidia Grap Driver 390.77
(obtained through the recommended procedure “apt install nvidia-cuda-toolkit”)

Card: GF106GL [Quadro 2000] NVIDIA Corporation

and Julia says:

julia> using CuArrays

julia> cu(rand(2,2))*2
ERROR: Device capability v2.1.0 not supported by available toolchain
 [1] error(::String) at ./error.jl:33
 [2] supported_capability(::CUDAdrv.CuDevice) at /home/francesco/.julia/packages/CUDAnative/Mdd3w/src/utils.jl:7

is there anyway to fix this on ubuntu 18.04?
I would really love to put those 192 cuda cores to good use on my favourite language!
Thank you in advance!


Your CUDA version is too new – compute capability 2.1 is only supported up until CUDA 8.0.

I tried to install Cuda 8.0 but it is not supported on ubuntu 18.04…
