I want to install batman-adv to join a mesh network but I don't find it in the repository
apt-cache search batman-adv
Is it possible to install it in Ubuntu?

You don't need the packet batman-adv since Ubuntu 12.04.
Install the packet
apt-get install batctl bridge-utils
modprobe batman-adv batctl -v
sais for example:
batctl debian-2011.4.0-2 [batman-adv: 2011.4.0]
(only some versions are compatible)
for example to connect to
wlan0 with the bssid
use this script. that will start a mesh network on your computer.
To get back to normal networking just restart the networkmanager:
and remove the node from batman (see script)
