What graphics card do you use. If its ati you need to install catalyst control center from atis website, not so sure about nvidia but I'm sure it would be similar.

For nvidia enable the restricted drivers and install the package 'nvidia-settings', this makes it fairly straightforward but I'm not sure if you need to run it as sudo or not.
