I would do a build of FPC and Lazarus from SVN trunk.
It works for me superbly and I don't have to worry about updates or 
keeping up-to-date with FPC/Lazarus.
Nor waiting years for the latest packages to be updated and included in 
The 2.5.1 trunk of FPC has a ton of new features and fixes/updates which 
I need and use without a problem.

Building FPC and Lazarus from SVN can be a little bit tricky until one 
gets it right, but once you have it you will not look back.

I can list my step by step install if you need (the first PITA item on 
the list is to install the VMWare tools into your Ubuntu so you will 
have copy/paste for the build process commands. This requires some 
kernel sources, etc.).
