Make sure to install drivers for the card, in Ubuntu you should be asked to do it after the initial install when first login in to the system. Or use the Hardware Drivers program to do it manually.

If you have done that and it keeps crashing, it could be that you need to change the resolution the game tries to use. Go to ~/PenumbraCollection/Overture/config/ and edit default_settings.cfg so that the line <Screen Width="800" Height="600" FullScreen="true" Vsync="false" /> has a Width="" and Height="" you know your computer can run. I am assuming that the game has always crashed on launch, so that you do not have a folder called .frictionalgames/Penumbra/Overture/ with a settings.cfg file in it, if you do you have to edit that settings.cfg file instead.
