Since Lucid you can install it from Ubuntu Software Center. You can find it here on-line:

If needed you can also use the binary package. julius-4.2.1-linuxbin.tar.gz as an example.
tar xvf julius-4.2.1-linuxbin.tar.gz && cd julius-4.2.1-linuxbin/ &&
sudo ./

You might need to install libx11 too and can install the prior to the script with:

sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
