OpenGL = hardware acceleration, which in turn means the computer leaves intensive graphical processing to the video card. Depending on your video card and the availability of Linux drivers for it, you may or may not have full (OpenGL) hardware acceleration available on your system.

First thing to check is Ubuntu's Hardware Drivers panel, it usually shows some drivers you can install (if available) so you can enable hardware acceleration properly.
