Is that a 32-bit or 64-bit Ubuntu? The 32-bit drivers on 64-bit Ubuntu
have a tendency to be broken, although in this case that would
probably be Parallels' responsibility and not Ubuntu's. Two general
points though:
  - Don't use Ubuntu for serious development.
  - Don't use VMs for GL/D3D development, unless you can fix the
drivers yourself.

I'm sure it's all kinds of fun to make it work, but it's not very
productive, and you end up with a somewhat questionable configuration
for testing.
