Thanks a lot, worked like a charm on a - google cloud Tesla K80 gpu ubuntu 16.04 - wm.
But I don't need the xvfb-run -s "-screen 0 1400x900x24" part, strange?

By the way, did you manage to get universe working?

Yes! It works and it's great :D
But even I don't need to use xvfb-run for rendering gym, I used a -X flag for ssh
Any idea what might be happening?

Also, if you could add another step about installing cuDNN libraries too, it would be useful for other people
