I'm trying to install gputools on Ubuntu 14.04LTS and I'm not having much
luck.  I'm not sure if it helps, but here's the R info that's output when I
run it:

R version 3.2.0 (2015-04-16) -- "Full of Ingredients"
Copyright (C) 2015 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)

Here are the steps I've taken so far:
*1) Run the following in the terminal:*

*git clone https://github.com/nullsatz/gputools.git

-This creates a "gputools" folder in my /home directory

*2)  Then run the following in the terminal:*

*R CMD build gputools*

-This creates the gputools_0.5.tar.gz in my home folder

*3) Then I run the following command (which is causing issues)*

*R CMD INSTALL --configure-args="--with-nvcc=/usr/local/cuda/bin/nvcc
--with-r-lib=/usr/lib/R/lib --with-r=/usr/lib/R/ " gputools_0.5.tar.gz*

and I get the following output:

** installing to library ‘/home/erol/R/library’*
** installing *source* package ‘gputools’ ...*
*** libs*
*Warning: no source files found*
*** R*
*** preparing package for lazy loading*
*** help*
**** installing help indices*
*** building package indices*
*** testing if installed package can be loaded*
*Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) : *
*  shared object ‘gputools.so’ not found*
*Error: loading failed*
*Execution halted*
*ERROR: loading failed*
** removing ‘/home/erol/R/library/gputools’*
** restoring previous ‘/home/erol/R/library/gputools’*

I've checked the paths, and found my '*libR.so*' tucked away all alone in
*/usr/lib/R/lib*, but I don't know where *gputools.so* is and I can't find
it by searching.

Any feedback on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help.
