The problem is that Ubuntu 12.04 still does not support laptops with Optimus technology so they default to the Intel integrated graphics.

The Intel integrated graphics card on the Ivy-bridge i7's aren't well supported in linux yet either so they lack the ability to render certain 3D graphics.

There are a couple of solutions; - Get an older laptop that has a supported graphics card. - Attempt to trick the linux kernel into using the NVidia Card instead of the integrated graphics. - Just stick to using .dae files and dodge the graphics issues the best you can.
