Only the oneiric kernel is the most recent backported kernel. This can be installed with sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-backport-oneiric. There are no other packages which you can install, because nearly everything depends on gnome3, and lucid has only gnome2.

If you need newer packages, upgrade to precise.

no way ill upgrade to precise- everything is slow even if i put gnome-session-fallback . so im looking for way to get 10.04 to be latests updates for all programms. – Kangarooo May 14 '12 at 15:13
one does not simply use lucid and have the updates from precise – gajdipajti May 14 '12 at 17:44
i still would like to get updates for programms still using gnome in 10.04 – Kangarooo May 27 '12 at 15:00
