I wonder if I can manually install Software Center and indicator-sound packages from Maverick to Lucid?

I don´t want to upgrade the whole system, because I´m satisfied with Lucid, but it would be nice to have Maverick Software Center and indicator-sound on Lucid.

I wanted to ask this, because I want to know if I´m going to mess up my system by doing that.

I would not do so, unless you can find a supported PPA here:

You probably will not mess up your system (much) if you try it, though you might not get usable results and be forced to manually downgrade many packages.

Thank you for your answer, but I couldn´t wait and I upgraded Software Center and all of the indicators from maverick main PPA. When I have done that, I disabled maverick PPA. – Mario Oct 10 '10 at 19:34
And have no problems at all. You can see here my new software center; – Mario Oct 10 '10 at 19:36

Ok. This is my first question here, so I am not quite familiar with all of this. Cheers! – Mario Oct 10 '10 at 19:50

Of course you can, ppa:guido-iodice/guiodiclucid has got a lot of maverick features for lucid ;)
