It appears that the game is using the GLUI library. Unfortunately, Ubuntu doesn't include this library in the archives for recent releases. It is, however, available for Precise.

You could try downloading the DEB for your architecture below and installing it with dpkg:


dpkg -i libglui2c2_2.36-4ubuntu1_*.deb
