I am part of the texmacs packaging team for Debian. The best way to see what
debian has is to go to 


Now you should see that Debian Sid (unstable) has texmacs 1: . If
you are looking for the latest released versions, chances are that you will
find them either in experimental or in unstable.

To access packages in unstable distribution add

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free

To access packages in experimental distribution add

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental main contrib non-free

to your /etc/apt/sources.list . Then run

apt-get update
apt-get install texmacs

This should work seemlessly. If there are any problems, please let us know
(through this mailing list). If you are successful, then also please let us
know. That way we know whether the updating process works or not on Ubuntu.
