generally you don't need to install clonezilla on your existing install, so it's not necessary to have a deb of it. Clonezilla is primarily intended to be used in a LiveCD environment, so you get the ISO, load it on a CD, and boot your machine with it.

I can run it with
qemu -hda clonezilla-stable.iso and try to backup my harddisk, i.e. the other partitions on my pc ?

sure, if you like. just saying the primary use.

I prefer using a proper backup program for regularly backing up my files.

Clonezilla works to clone your hard disk partitions. This means it can create a backup of an installed operating system (like your linux install, or a windows install) that will boot and run correctly. Having a clone partition is very useful if you're not the only user on a machine, or if you do a lot of experimental stuff that can seriously damage your install. It also works well if you're maintaining many computers where the installed OS needs to be identical. For most home Linux users, a LiveCD will work fine as a recovery tool, and Clonezilla is the wrong kind of tool.

It is not by any stretch the tool I'd pick for regular backups of my books, music, photographs and programming files. For regular data files, I simply keep copies on a large spare USB key. An external USB hard drive can work also. If any of my files were of financial value, I'd pay for a Dropbox or Ubuntu One account (or something similar) so I could maintain an off site backup. A single backup is not a good strategy when you've got files that are critical to your income.

If you decide that you do need Clonezilla, definitely use it as a LiveCD, and figure out a sensible location for the OS clone partition(s) to go on your network.

This post is quite old, anyway I found the solution today:

http://packratstudios.com/index.php/2008/04/20/how-to-setup-clonezilla-on-linux-ubuntu-quick-start-guide/

It tells there is a repository where you can download the packages for both clonezilla and drbl (so, also the .deb if you neeed it).

Just add

deb http://free.nchc.org.tw/drbl-core drbl stable

to your /etc/apt/source.list.
