Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

Note. Before downloading and installing new driver, make sure that your system has a supported NVIDIA GPU.
How to identify and install the correct driver for your Nvidia video card in Linux Mint can be viewed on page "How to detect and install the correct version of the Nvidia driver on Linux Mint". Otherwise, after you install the NVIDIA driver 352.21 you risk not to run the system.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-settings

After installation, restart your computer to activate the installed driver.
After a new logon check the installed graphics driver utility NVIDIA X Server Settings, search in the menu or in the terminal command:

glxinfo | grep OpenGL

After installation I suggest that you disable repository ppa:xorg-the edgers/ppa as it can pull a lot of unnecessary packages.

 Good Luck!!!
