You can try to just compile and install from sources.
See instructions in the source package. Worst thing that
can happen is that it does not work.

If you decide to have the self-compiled binaries and the
ones from Ubuntu installed at the same time, you need to make
sure to use the right ones. Personally (on Debian) I just
locked the distro-package against updates and installed the 
self-compiled ones over the distribution binaries. That is 
dirty and may break at some time, but then I will just 
install over it again. An alternative is to install the
self-compiled to /usr/local/* and make sure to call them
instead of the distribution-supplied ones.

There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it
so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to
make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first
method is far more difficult.  --Tony Hoare
