Install Linux Mint 'Driver Manager' in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty/13.10 Saucy/13.04 Raring/12.10 Quantal/and other related Ubuntu derivatives

Linux Mint 15 had Driver Manager for the first time which is developed by Linux Mint team. Mint-Drivers relies on the same Ubuntu driver manager back-end and works the same way as software-properties-gtk. It just looks a bit better than Ubuntu Additional drivers.
The "Driver Manager" is an independent application, separate from "Software Sources" and which you can launch straight from the menu.
Drivers are listed by package name, and their version are clearly stated (in the case of the NVIDA drivers you can therefore choose according to a particular version instead of wondering what "current" or "updates" really mean).
Devices from popular brands (NVIDIA, ATI, Broadcom, Samsung and so on...) are illustrated with an icon.
