Here's their installation wiki page. You should be able to install using the "from the source tarball" section. Just open a console session, and enter the commands from the instruction page. Good luck with it

If I recall, I was able to use the Ubuntu debs from here

Don't forget the tovid-gui if you want the GUI for tovid as well.

dpkg -i file.deb if more than one .deb put them on the same command line at once, as root user of course.
