Display depth is still one of the things that's hard to change.

You can find out how many bits of color you've got your display
configured for by doing this:

 xdpyinfo |grep "depth of root window"

from a terminal. Mine's running at 16-bit color:

burner at phoenix:~$ xdpyinfo |grep "depth of root window"
  depth of root window:    16 planes

To change it, you'll need to reconfigure the xserver:

 sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Eventually you'll get to a place where you can select your desired bit
