Just wondering: why are you using getdeb?  Those are both in the repositories, 
so you can install them through Applications -> Add/Remove.  I would expect 
getdeb to list any dependencies you need to install from Add/Remove (possibly 
with its advanced mode).  If not lists all 
dependencies for all packages in Ubuntu.

Do you have Ubuntu set to mount any NTFS (Windows-formatted) drives by 
default?  For that matter, did you install the "normal" way or with Wubi?  If 
Wubi, that'd be why disk check from Windows works for it.  If the "normal" 
way, then Ubuntu should have been able to run its own disk check on the ext3
