Nvidia driver from cuda toolkit

I was stuck with this issue for a long time for my Ubuntu 16.04. After installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu 16.04, I installed cuda 8.0 toolkit using the deb(local):

$ sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install cuda

Nvidia driver is working well on my computer now. Prior to that, I was trying to install Nvidia driver using the *.run file without any luck. Give it a shot it will save your valuable time.
