According to Linux G:
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.
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.More at Linux G
