lsmod |grep nvidia
nvidia              10503579  44 
drm                   249955  4 nvidia
i2c_core               46012  3 drm,i2c_i801,nvidia

However, the command to activate the GPUs does not work because bash does not recognize "nvidia-smi". At this point I wonder whether this is a problem of the terminal rather than of nvidia.

It seems you have the module.  Is it loaded?

lsmod | grep nvidia
