This is a graphics driver bug.  So double check what kind of graphics 
you have by running in a command shell:

     lspci | grep VGA

If it is NVIDIA or AMD/ATI, then switch to using a proprietary driver.  
If it is Intel, then to get a newer driver, you need to either update to 
a more recent version of Ubuntu or add a PPA -- see 
https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5452-IOSM-1474 for 
details.

     HTH,

     Greg
