How to uninstall CUDA Toolkit and cuDNN under Linux?
I have downloaded and installed the CUDA Toolkit 8 and cuDNN 5.1 for Ubuntu; now I would like to update to the latest release, and be sure the latest release is the only one installed on my system. How can I completely remove the currently installed CUDA Toolkit and cuDNN? Thanks!

If you installed using the package manager method, instructions for uninstall are contained in the linux install guide. If you installed via package manager, you would use a remove call to your package manager.

Study the install and delete those files.

Thank you for the link! I have managed to uninstall CUDA with [b]apt purge[/b], and cuDNN just removing the directory where I had copied its libraries.
