    You'll need to install the drivers for your video card. This Ubuntu wiki article should help:

    Once that is done, make sure Load "glx" is in your X configuration file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and is not commented out with a #.

    Also, it's generally a bad idea to run regular programs as root, or to even login as root at all. Use a regular user account and either su or sudo to temporarily get root privileges for programs that require it.

    As a side note, try making your post subject more specific so that your question can be answered faster.
