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.
