In the official repository of Ubuntu and Debian is only the 2.6 version of Blender. I searched with Google to find a Debian package to download. But I found nothing.

There is also a PPA mentioned here that you can use:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/blender
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install blender

It also has the blender2.4 package, which is great for people like me who prefer it :-)

Today I bundled a Debian package for Blender 2.70a.

At the moment it is only for 64bit architecture, but I'm working on it. You can use GDebi to install it graphical. You install GDebi by entering sudo apt-get install gdebi.
