Geekbench for GPU assessment on Ubuntu

When I run geekbench_x86_32 --compute on my ubuntu 16.04 machine, I get the following error:

geekbench_x86_32: src/geekbench/benchmark_driver.cpp:159: WorkloadOptions (anonymous namespace)::populate_compute_options(const DriverOptions *): Assertion `is_valid_compute_device(options.compute_device)' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

I've read the --help, but "--compute CUDA" simply causes the help to load again.
I have nvidia-375 drivers installed, and a GeForce 1080 GPU that I'm trying to work with.

Could you help me sort out this problem?

Thank you!

    Hi Jody,

    Thanks for your message. I have filed this with our engineering team so that they can have a look at it. Are you running 64-bit Ubuntu? Have you installed the 32-bit compatibility libraries?

    Hi Arielle,

    Yes, I'm running 64-bit, and I've installed the 32-bit compatibility
    libraries. The program works without the --compute flag to test the CPU,
    but I can't get it to test the GPU.

    Thank you for looking into this for me!
