I have also a frontend on 0.22 here, and since there was no repository
which would let me install 0.22 on Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS, I went for compiling
the source code myself. I'm quite a newbie to Linux still, but managed to
compile (after installing Qt4 and a few other programs/libs to fix issues
which arose during the first compilation attempts).

Upgrading the entire Hardy machine to Karmic could be a pain. But
compiling the source code should be feasible - in particular as you won't
break your existing setup until you have managed to compile 0.22.
