Whenever I start up Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition on my computer, it crashes. I've looked up numerous things to make it work, none of which succeeded. My system surpasses all the game's required specs, and I'm running Kubuntu 14.04.
The game says it's starting, syncs with steam, then gives me this screen:

Make sure you're using the graphics card provider's binary drivers. nouvea is only openGL 3.0 and Divinity requires at least 4.0

In a terminal run the following command:
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"

If the output doesn't start with OpenGL version string: 4.
then there's your problem. Installing the nvidia binaries is really easy, Read this ubuntu forum:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia

In short, in a terminal type:
sudo ubuntu-drivers devices
sudo apt-get install nvidia-**

Where ** is replaced with the highest number option your graphics card supports - determined from the .ubuntu-drivers devices command.

So I did as you said, and it installed the nvidia drivers, but it still gives me the same error when starting Divinity. However, it did say
"OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.

So I fixed the direct rendering error, but now I'm back to the original error.
