    Have you tried to install Driver through Hardware Drivers option in Menu?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    With Ubuntu, I found Envyng to be the way to go when configuring video. See this for more. There is a GTK frontend for Envyng, but it is large and the command line usage is mindlessly simple. Once installed:
    sudo envyng -t
    ...and you're off. A great tool to configure video in Ubuntu.
