CUDA install removes Nvidia driver in ubuntu 18.04

Ask Ubuntu Asked by Pranto on November 28, 2020

After installing CUDA 11, It removed my Nvidia driver.

$nvidia-smi
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

$nvcc --version
nvcc: NVIDIA (R) Cuda compiler driver
Copyright (c) 2005-2020 NVIDIA Corporation
Built on Wed_Jul_22_19:09:09_PDT_2020
Cuda compilation tools, release 11.0, V11.0.221
Build cuda_11.0_bu.TC445_37.28845127_0

$uname -r
5.4.0-47-generic

It doesn’t allow me to select Nvidia from the software & updates center. Why is that?

Should I install my Nvidia driver manually? Because previously I had an issue with the black screen after installing manually the Nvidia driver. I need your suggestion. What should I do?

Looks like, CUDA 11 is incompatible with Nvidia 340.108, and that’s why when I install CUDA, It installed nvidia-driver-450 and removed nvidia 340.108.
