imo, ubuntu is a rather silly alternative to normal debian since its limited itself to GNOME apps. there are just as many if not more QT apps..which are arguably more user friendly on a xp/osx level. but there are still options for ubuntu:

one is add sid sources to your list:
echo "deb http://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list && apt-get update

youll now be able to install all the ppc audio apps that agnula/demudi/other maintainers have added to debian unstable. they include pd, sc, ardour, rosegarden etc..

or you should simply be able to compile it on ubuntu after doing this:

apt-get install libjack0.80.0-dev alsa-base alsa-headers xlibs-dev tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev gcc g++ automake autoconf
