Hi,

you can simply install Ardour from the Ubuntu repository (software center or Synaptic packet Manager).

You could have a look here at how to build Ardour from source: http://ardour.org/building_ardour2 - But I wouldn't recommend it for now if you haven't compiled anything before, try the Ubuntu package first. If that doesn't serve your needs it's good to have the source code at hand, but first try the Ubuntu version.

Best
Benjamin
