Sudo should work. Perhaps you could try to check on the polkit (policy kit) side or to add your account in the sudoers file
I understand that you need your thing to work and at the moment the only way you have found to do it is using root BUT this is not a solution in my humble opinion but a dirty workaround.
So instead of spending time trying to figure out how to make budgie and your hardware running fine as root, it would be better to use this time to try to make the proprietary application running fine without having to switch your whole system as root.
PS: Regarding the problem itself (I quickly read and I don't understand much), I don't understand why the application is complaining about a cuda library not found when running as a standard user but not as root.
That was only as example, i have other applications like this too and without cuda they are pointless - i can't wait 6 hours for a CPU job at 100% utilization and high °C when i can do it under ms-windows for less than than two hours with the GPU(cuda).
But that is beside the point of the topic - using root or not i think it should be fully functional, i had in mind that it should be good to report in case it is a some kind of bug.
