    Go to Software Sources > Additional Drivers.

    It will tell you which drivers are available for your card and let you chooses which one to install.

    What choices are you getting?

    The nouveau driver is the open source driver that comes with Ubuntu.

    For better performance you can switch to the nvidia driver which is the closed source driver written by Nvidia.

    Cheesemill... I think you meant ATI and the FGLRX driver for his Radeon.

    But otherwise pccruzadas, Cheesemill was right in where to go and what to install.

    Re: Drivers

    Are these Windows apps? You can't just run Windows apps in Ubuntu; this is Linux, not Windows.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    If these are windows apps you may be able to run them in wine, but there's no guarantee. Have a look at the database at http://appdb.winehq.org/ to see other people's experiences with your software.
