Ubuntu has been well-known to include an out-of-date TeX Live (I think 2007!) with many long-resolved issues.  It is also problematic to install TeX Live or some parts of it separately if one has already installed the TeX packages made available by the distro, as all sorts of things break (or will suddenly break when there is some package update).  The tlmgr utility also conflicts with the distro's own package update feature so is typically unavailable.

The best things to do would be to switch from Ubuntu to another distro that has TeX Live 2009 (sorry, I cannot tell you which one), or else to not install the TeX packages from the distro's manager but to install and maintain TeX Live separately.
