Strange you should ask that now :)  As I just downloaded the latest Ubuntu Desktop release and am going to install it in a VM and install both libdivecomputer and Subsurface that I grabbed from the git repo.  Will report my findings back to the list once I get that completed.

When I cut 3.0.1 I didn't realize that our Ubuntu .deb files would possibly be built on Ubuntu 10.4. So 3.0.1 doesn't compile on 10.4 and if that is indeed the desired build platform then I'll need to do a 3.0.2 - I don't think having binaries built on random git versions is a smart idea.

That said - can a Ubuntu 12.4 or 12.10 system install / run those binaries? Because while I can understand that you want to stay on 10.4 - most users will be on 12.04 or 12.10…
