It sounds like you don't have the GD extension installed. I don't use Ubuntu any longer, but I think it may be named php5-gd, so you'd need to install that package and restart your webserver and it should then work.

  1. Install the gd package:

    apt-get install php5-gd php-db php5-mysql
  2. Restart the web server:

    sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

That should do it.
