On the KeePassX site there is only a Linux version 0.4.3 for download.

how can I install the latest version on Ubuntu?

The problem is, that Version 0.4 is basically unmaintained.

I didn't have any trouble building from source:

# Assuming you have basic build tools already installed
sudo apt-get install cmake libgcrypt11-dev
git clone
cd keepassx/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local
make 2>&1 | tee make.log
sudo make install 2>&1 | tee make-install.log

do this first if you missing any libraries. - sudo apt-get build-dep keepassx - sudo apt-get install ubuntu-dev-tools cmake zlib1g-dev libgcrypt11-dev –  Kobe Oct 30 '13 at 17:04
