Normally you have everythings. You need to configure the plugins. The best is to use CDVDnull and to load directly ISO.
Is this 64 bit Ubuntu? If so you might be missing some dependencies. If you are using the PPA (software center) type...
sudo apt-get build-dep pcsx2-unstable:i386
If your Ubuntu is 32bit leave off the :i386 part.
Then type jockey-gtk to make sure you have the latest proprietary graphics card drivers, not the open source ones.
Then when you open your PCSX2 go to config>> Plugin/Bios Selector and change GS plugin from GSNull to ZZOGL or GSDX (should fix black screen), then change your pad plugin to OnePAD if you are using a controller to configure it. Then change your CDVD to EFP or Linuz. If either is not available you will need to make an iso from your game disc and use the Null CDVD plugin to play only the iso. You can play the iso by going to CDVD at the main commands, then "browse" for your path to your iso. The go to System >> Boot CDVD (full or fast, I like fast). If any other issues please attach an error log from the game or terminal.
I see from your screenshot you have a Core2 Intel at only 2 GHZ. You need to be > 3.1 GHZ if you want to play games properly in software mode, and that is not always a guarantee it will work properly. Also, for some reason even for me the PPA has GSdx plugin only with no zzOGL plugin, and I don't know why (not a genius at this stuff). I tend to compile PCSX2 myself from SVN and that gives me more options. Honestly though, GSdx is much more better with the rare exception of a few games.
