LD_LIBRARY_PATH is an environment variable which contains paths to shared
libraries. It should already be set with some default paths depending on
your linux distribution.

Now that you've found the path to the CUDA libraries, all you'll need to do
is update this particular environment variable like so depending on your
default shell.

For bash, enter "export
and for csh or tcsh, enter "setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH

To figure out which shell you're using, type "echo $SHELL" which will either
return paths for bash, csh or tcsh
