I browsed and referenced some of the posts – great appreciation for the authors for their sharing, and I list them below.

- How can I install CuDNN on Ubuntu 16.04?
Step 0: Install cuda from the standard repositories. (See How can I install CUDA on Ubuntu 16.04?)
Step 1: Register an nvidia developer account and download cudnn here (about 80 MB)
Step 2: Check where your cuda installation is. For the installation from the repository it is
/usr/include. Otherwise, it will be
/urs/local/cuda/. You can check it with
which nvcc or
ldconfig -p | grep cuda
Step 3: Copy the files:
$ cd folder/extracted/contents $ sudo cp -P include/cudnn.h /usr/include $ sudo cp -P lib64/libcudnn* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ $ sudo chmod a+r /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcudnn*
-P retains the symbolic links, i.e.
sudo cp -P lib64/libcudnn* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, and avoids the message:
/sbin/ldconfig.real: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcudnn.so.5 is not a symbolic link – Max Gordon Jun 26 ’16 at 8:56
For Tensorflow to find everything, I had to copy
include/cudnn.h and the libraries in
/usr/local/cuda-8.0/lib64 (using CUDA 8.0, Ubuntu 14.04, Tensorflow 0.12.0rc0) – maybe this is helpful for somebody. – David Stutz Dec 9 ’16 at 12:16
- On the cloud (source: from this page)
If you don’t want to install TensorFlow, you can use TensorFlow over the web.
You can use Tensorflow over the web at https://cloud.sagemath.com/ Simply click on the link, create an account (or log in with your GitHub), and create a TensorFlow project.
You can also use Jupyter notebook to write TensorFlow programs.
