I found a .deb version somewhere on the web (sorry, but I don't remember 
where), I placed it on my server if you are interested :

But yes... it would be cool to have default in UbuStu :-)

I use them a lot.
ZynAddSubFx and Bristol are both on my favorite list of 
synths/v-inst/fx, but unfortunaly the list is kind'a small if you 
exclude Win-VST.

I havent had any serious problems using them with dssi-vst, but I havent 
tested extensively and only one at a time, like "XLN addictive drums" 
for when I practice my e-drums or "VoxengoBoogex" for guitar.
I have removed Pulse, but other than that, I just run them with "vsthost 
/_path_to_/vsti.dll" and most of them work, If I'm composing/editing I 
just load them in my host (XT2) but I like the idea of just clicking on 
the "drums" icon on my desktop and play without having to start my host 
and load/setup the instrument first.
