Hi to all,

As a new user of Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon 64-bit I have porblems with setting up Nvidia CUDA for Mathematica 9.01.

My System is a Dell XPS 15 with including a Intel Core i7 2760 and aNvidia Gforce Gt 540M. I was able to make Mathematica using CUDA on Win7 with this computer but with Linux I have some problem:

I was able to install the Nvidia Driver using the sudo apt-get install nvidia-current. By using bumblebee i was able to see, that my computer uses the Gforce Card if i start applications with optirun.

Unfortunally I was not able to install nvidia CUDA without problems. After Downloading the latest version and following the manual on the nvidia hompage Cinnamon crashes after starting. I was only able to solve this problem by reinstalling the nvida driver.

My question to you: Has anyone an idea how i could make this things work. How can I install the driver without crashing my system and what configurations have to be done to make Mathematica using CUDA.

*edit* edited wrong Linux Mint version number

Thank you very much.

Best regards
