Hey fellas i have a question about gnome sword.
I checked the gnomesword website and as of the 23rd version 2.2 is available but version 2.1 is in the repository and i don't know how to get it.

Well, why do you need 2.1? Why not just use 2.2

Also, try to use Synaptic, and see how that works out.

oh man after reading my post again i was pretty unclear, I was just wondering how to upgrade to 2.2 from 2.1 which is in the repository, is it not worth the time and effort?

In Ubuntu (or any other Debian-based distro) the packages are converted to work better with the distro before being put in the repositories. This causes some delay in releasing new packages and kernels, but the programs work much better and work together, saving a lot of confusion. If you really want the new version, you can download and compile it yourself, but I would recommend waiting until it is in the repositories.
