I wouldn't recommend installing TeXlive using the Ubuntu package manager if
you want the latest release. The reason is that Debian-based systems, such
as Ubuntu, have a history of shipping horribly outdated versions. The
currently available TeXlive version is 2009. Before that 2007 was
distributed. The 2008 release and the 2010 release never saw the light of
day as Debian packages.

If you want the latest version of TeXlive, use the official installer:


That will install TeXlive 2011---released four days ago and still hot off
the forges.
