Mint Driver Manager 1.11 lets you install proprietary drivers. Here's how you can install it in Ubuntu 14.04.

1. Open a terminal window.

2. Type in the following commands then hit Enter after each.

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

3. You can use this command to remove Mint Driver Manager.

sudo apt-get remove mintdrivers

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.
