    Nvidia cuda toolkit unavailable for installation

    I was trying to install kali on my laptop GT72VR-7RD (on secondary drive and to use full power of gpu), and upon following kali document to install graphic driver, I found out that installing nvidia-cuda-toolkit is not available:

    Package nvidia-cuda-toolkit is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source


    E: Package 'nvidia-cuda-toolkit' has no installation candidate

    By searching kali repository, I found that this package has been removed from 4/23, and so it is currently unavailable for me to use cuda.
    So, I'd like to know if there's another way to use this driver or when the package would become available again.

    BTW, trying to use installation package from nvidia cuda site, there was only package for ubuntu(non for debian), and it seemed not possible to install cuda toolkit by this way.

    Super-First (edited;-) :

    remove prior nvidia driver installations completely!

    sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*

    remove all notions of that P.O.S. driver 'nouveau'

    sudo service lightdm stop

    sudo apt-get remove --purge nouveau*

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

    blacklist nouveau
    options nouveau modeset=0

    sudo update-initramfs -u && reboot


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    First, make sure your GPU is CUDA-enabled:

    https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Then carefully follow these directions to the T:

    https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-in...nux/index.html

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Download CUDA toolkit here:

    https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-do...arget_os=Linux

    I would select the Ubuntu (Debian like Kali) then select proper architecture
    Select runfile(local) if you plan to install on that system and right away.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Good luck, happy crackin'!

    P.S. I'm new here, any upvotes are greatly appreciated!
