ubuntu repos, lenny and gnome-do


I've been trying to install gnome-do ( and have run into a couple of problems:

The repos i have in my sources list have a very out of date version of the program which is missing some fairly major features. The only help I have found from googling is to add ubuntu repos to my sources list. However, I am running debian lenny not ubuntu and don't really know where to start or whether this will cause problems. I ran into a problem a few weeks ago after adding a sid repo and ended up having to format/reinstall.

The other option is to download and build from source. There seem to be so many ways to do this that I have become extremely confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Forgive my newbie-ness
