Did you first gone through the instructions on this page:


installing all required tools and libraries under All versions of Ardour 
and For the Ardour 2.0 series? And for the libraries also dev versions. 
You can find all these libraries from Synaptic just search. fftw3f is 
inside some random package just install it. All the rest are quite 
straight forward.

Then just download the source and at that point jump to the page you 
were looking at.

I'm pretty sceptic that the wine you will find at Ubuntu rep will 
actually work. The version I mentioned in some earlier post works and to 
install that you need to download deb package from Wine site as the 
newest version they have in their own repository does not work either.
