Where can I get XBMC for Ubuntu?
I have the team-xbmc ppa added however they have no packages, is there an older deb or is there somewhere where i can get the source and build myself?

Click on the button:
or by simply opening a terminal and typing
sudo apt-get install xbmc.
After the release of Ubuntu 12.04 updates should be available in the stable XBMC PPA above and XBMC can be updated by adding the PPA and updating your system.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
If you want to compile xbmc in Ubuntu, the following worked for me:
sudo apt-get install git-core make g++ gcc gawk pmount libtool nasm yasm automake cmake gperf zip unzip bison libsdl-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libfribidi-dev liblzo2-dev libfreetype6-dev libsqlite3-dev libogg-dev libasound2-dev python-sqlite libglew-dev libcurl3 libcurl4-gnutls-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libmad0-dev libogg-dev libvorbisenc2 libsmbclient-dev libmysqlclient-dev libpcre3-dev libdbus-1-dev libhal-dev libhal-storage-dev libjasper-dev libfontconfig-dev libbz2-dev libboost-dev libenca-dev libxt-dev libxmu-dev libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libpulse-dev mesa-utils libcdio-dev libsamplerate-dev libmpeg3-dev libflac-dev libiso9660-dev libass-dev libssl-dev fp-compiler gdc libmpeg2-4-dev libmicrohttpd-dev libmodplug-dev libssh-dev gettext autopoint cvs python-dev libyajl-dev libboost-thread-dev libplist-dev libusb-dev libudev-dev
cd git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git xbmc cd xbmc ./bootstrap ./configure make sudo make install
although you can install xbmc in 12.04 via software-center or
sudo apt-get install xbmc, for those that want to compile xbmc in 12.04, for whatever reason(Like to see code pass by in the gnome-terminal for that geeky feel) Here is the code which enables said feeling.
sudo apt-get build-dep xbmc cd git clone git://github.com/xbmc/xbmc.git xbmc cd xbmc ./bootstrap ./configure make sudo make install
Note: Reboot after compiling for the XBMC icon to appear!
XBMC - HOW-TO:Compile XBMC on Debian/Ubuntu I don't know how I missed that!
For Ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10 you can use the following PPA from here: XBMC Nightly : Nathan Rennie-Waldock
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
I recommend this one because:
This are the problems I was having with XBMC that came with 12.04. This is because most of this problems are fixed in the Git repository but not yet applied to a stable release. This version however is very stable for me. Tested with 900+ movies, 8000+ songs and 17 TV series. Downloaded cover arts for all, lyrics, subtitles, etc.. No problem, not even one. The remote controller for android also worked perfectly.
