Run it in terminal to see if it reports an error. Post the output here.

Check that your driver supports OpenGL 2.1 with glxinfo |grep -i OpenGL.

I did the run from terminal and got this:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

so yea...
Also OpenGL 2.1 wouldn't i just get render errors of i was a version off?

Segmentation fault could be a driver issue yes (or more precisely, the issue that Godot requires OpenGL 2.1 but does not check properly if the API is available before trying to access it, so it crashes when it's not available).

What's the output of glxinfo |grep -i OpenGL?

well im out of the game... openGL 2.0....great....:(

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

Have you tried to update your GPU driver ?

Well I dont know if i can cause its an older computer.... and I dont even know how i would even update my graphics driver

You can know your graphics card by entering lspci | grep VGA in a terminal.
