ime, that's hardly ever an issue.  Grab the package (_don't_ add the
repository to your sources.list) and "dpkg --install" it. 
Then "aptitude -f install".  If there are no errors, its fine, if there
are, then you're going to have to uninstall it and either find an ubuntu
package or compile from source.
