Brian, Alberto,

I have installed and tested the package, no changes on my side, still getting unknown display and xrandr -q gets me unconnected displays as connected... I have not changed the tag to verification-failes, because I have no idea where is this option (maybe I am stupid, but this forum is very unclear for me).

Below is what I did and why it does not work in my opinion:
1. Added proposed trusty updates by adding deb trusty-proposed restricted main multiverse universe to sources.list
2. Ran apt-get update
3. Ran apt-get install ubuntu-drivers-common (did not want to install any of the other proposed packages, since most likely those would break the system)
4. Ran xrandr -q (and got wrong output)
5. Rebooted
6. Ran xrandr -q (and got wrong output)

Here is the output:
xaffax@xaffax-router:~$ xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
   640x480 59.9 +
   320x240 60.1
TV-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-I-0 connected primary 1280x1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 337mm x 270mm
   1280x1024 60.0*+
   1024x768 75.0 70.1 60.0
   800x600 75.0 60.3
   640x480 75.0 59.9

Obviously only DVI-I-0 is connected.

To confirm correct package is installed:
xaffax@xaffax-router:~$ apt-cache policy ubuntu-drivers-common
