Cycles and CUDA in Blender

Installed the new linux Mint 16 Cinnamon (beautiful :D)

...And then found my GPU renderng with cycles in Blender didnt work.

After much frustration i finally got it working, it seems the cuda toolkit didnt package with the recent blender release. So here it is, hope it helps others!! (makes sense now that i think about it..)

sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit 
 
p.s. got the tip from Ji over here:
