The intel hd should already be a part of you ubuntu distribution. You probably just need to adjust the resolution.

Executables do not work in linux.
Most applications have to be compiled from source code.

With ununtu you probably not need to compile very much. Most applications can be installed using the synaptic package manager.

If you want help in any forum, you will get the best help if you put something substantive in the subject header instead of "hi everybody".
You should change it to "Install intel hd graphics on ubuntu"
