This may be what you are looking for:- (nvidia-common)NVIDIA binary kernel module support files

This package contains support files used for any version of the NVIDIA
kernel module. It sets up udev and ConsoleKit rules, ensures the NVIDIA
control device is created, associates the NVIDIA card with the correct
kernel module, and performs any other tasks required for the module to
work properly.

Do a "Quick search" for nvidia-common in (synaptic) package manager (and right click;select: mark for installation,&select: install)
or use mint Menu search
