On K/Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) I can trivially install via gui or 
command line texlive packages currently bearing version number 

FWIW, maintaining two separate TeXLive distributions, one from the 
K/Ubuntu packages and another from the CTAN TeXLive repository is likely 
to be problem prone. After installing the K/Ubuntu packages, one simply 
updates and upgrades them with apt-get rather than running tlmgr.

Your comments above do not come within the ambit of my experience.
