The current release of Ubuntu (Intrepid, 8.10) includes linsmith 0.99.7 
(the binary package name for x86 is linsmith_0.99.7-1_i386.deb ).  What 
makes you think it still includes 0.99.3 ?  Where are you getting that 
information from?  In particular, what does

  apt-cache show linsmith | grep Version:

output on your Ubuntu machine?  And (just to check you are running the 
current Ubuntu release) what does:

  cat /etc/lsb-release
