On Windows I would use SoapUI, which can be run on Ubuntu either as a standalone application (see instructions on how in this question) or as an Eclipse plugin. Is there any other GUI available - perhaps something in a repository - for testing SOAP services?

You can still use SOAPUI

download the script from here and save it on the disk.

then from a terminal

cd /path-to-directory-where-you-downlaod-it
sudo chmod +x soapUI-x32-4_0_0.sh
sudo ./soapUI-x32-4_0_0.sh

Or if you don't like command you can do it graphically

right click on the downloaded file then properties and go permission tab and allow permission to execute as a program.

enter image description here

Once that is done double click on the .sh file and select 'Run in terminal' or Run

Then follow step by step instructions to finish the installation.

Alternatives

Membrane SOAP Client

Membrane SOAP Client is a generic SOAP client written in Java. It provides a dynamic form generator for SOAP requests.

Also you can use jmeter a 100% pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions. Jmeter is in the Ubuntu repositories.

I accepted this answer, but I'm really hoping for some alternatives to SoapUI. –  Eyal Oct 16 '12 at 10:55

Mooza is the best alternative for a soap client tool. This is a web application which can be easily deployed on Tomcat/JBoss/Jetty etc.
