I have a GeForce 7300 GS graphics card in my Ubuntu machine, I am running Ubuntu Studio 16.04 with Blender 2.77.
The machine has an AMD 4.6GHz 4 core processor, but render times are around 7 minutes per frame, I know I have not shown the model, but it can be found here:
I have loaded Nvidia Driver, nvidia-cuda-toolkit, nvidia-modprobe, but I do not see the option for CUDA rendering in User Prefs => System - I just get Compute Device = “None”. That is what I was advised to do on an Ubuntu forum and various other places.
I have obviously missed something, can anyone tell me what and how I put it right please? I am told that render times will be MUCH faster with GPU rendering, but I cannot get Blender to see my GPU and the full animation of my project is 4900 frames, so at 7 minutes per frame, this is one mother of a long time to spend in the pub waiting for it to render. :yes:
