How to enable CUDA in Blender Flatpak

Post by F3Spirit » Sun Jun 17, 2018 8:22 am

I have another newbie Question.

I can't get CUDA to work in the Blender Flatpak from the Mint 18.3 Software Manager.

I was able to install the none Flatpack Blender Verison from the official page via this "tutorial": ... al-website
But Blender didn't show up in the Menue, so I couldn't right-click it to add it to the panel for example.
However, when I started it as a sudo from the folder I could activate CUDA there.

So I already use the native Drivers but totally new to Flatpaks and to install manually from the official page.
But sadly the standard version in the Software Manager is way out of date for productive use now.

So how to get CUDA active in the Flatpak Version is my question
