Personally I would also use apt if I was not well aware of Ubuntu. That would save you a lot of headache. You can also compile manually but you would need to take care of dependencies manually. You have got apt, use it.

I think when it comes to ubuntu their repsoitories are good and updated, so you can use apt to install all these, and it's really easy, no one needs to haggle over with compiling each application.
