What version of Mint and which desktop environment are you using?

In Cinnamon, try opening up System Settings -> Color. (should be similar in Mate)

Well, these are uncharted waters for me, but I would suggest installing v4l2ucp:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install v4l2ucp


Next, you should be able to run it from the command line.
Code: Select all
v4l2ucp
