Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Mint Driver Manager is a tool developed by the Linux Mint team that enables the users to easily install proprietary drivers on their Linux system, via a intuitive interface.
Due to the fact that Mint Driver Manager is Desktop Environment independent, it works on all the desktop environments: Unity, KDE, XFCE, LXDE, GNOME, etc. The latest version available is Mint Driver Manager 1.11.
In this article I will show you how to install Mint Driver Manager 1.11 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 and other Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the Mint Driver Manager from the Linux Mint Pool and install it via commandline. I prefer gdebi over dpkg, due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main/m/mintdrivers/mintdrivers_1.1.1_all.deb
$ sudo gdebi mintdrivers_1.1.1_all.deb
Optional, to remove Mint Driver Manager, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove mintdrivers
