    Welcome.

    Unfortunately there are bad news. 304 driver is no longer supported. The last Ubuntu release where it was supported is 16.04 with the original kernel version, i.e., no higher than 16.04.1. The included kernel version is supported until the end of that release (April 2021). After that you need to find something else not in Ubuntu family (or use the default open-source nouveau drive that may or may not work properly).

    Also if you were using a card that was supported by current drivers you wouldn't install them by downloading and running some random file, you'd just use the package manager.
    None but ourselves can free our minds

    It's supported by the open-source driver 'radeon'. Already included, no installation required.
    The aforementioned driver was developed with AMD so it's a different situation than with 'nouveau' for Nvidia cards.

    Whether or not it works satisfactory in this day and age with legacy hardware your experience will tell.

    If you have an HD 6450 you are good to go for many years to come using the default radeon drivers. Just install something lighter than Ubuntu which is about as heavy as one can go within the Buntu world.

    Don't try to add anything Nvidia related to the system.
