Is it possible to use Nvidia GPUs on Linux with Blender ?

Blender (v2.82a) does not recognize and use my NVIDIA Quadro P400 GPU since I switched to a Linux OS (Lubuntu 20.04).

Does it mean that my GPU does not work with Blender for this OS ?

Quadro P400 can be seen in the list of CUDA-Enabled NVIDIA Quadro and NVIDIA RTX :

Yet it is not recognized

I just tried updating my Blender version (with 2.92 release) -> same result...
