How can I change the device? EDIT: Yes, I have a (Nvidia) graphics card and CUDA installed

I've got a GeForce GTX 960M with updated drivers

  • $\begingroup$ I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and Blender 2.79. I followed this question (or rather the answer) and installed nvidia-modprob additionally to nvidia-cuda-toolkit. $\endgroup$

Additionally to installing the drivers and Cuda, I had to choose the NVidia card as the card used for rendering (hybrid card), by runningsudo prime-select nvidia and log off and in again, afterwards it works. This is now really off-topic.
