I want to stay with the LTS release cycle but I would like to support Ubuntu with my Amazon purchases. Is there a way I can install the Amazon lens in 12.04?

You can't really install the exact one that's on 12.10, but you can do this instead...

Run this to install:

add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity-lens-shopping-alternate

To uninstall:

sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping
