    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority

    No questions are stupid,

    here is what I think that you have to do, You said that you are on 10.04 so there is a ppa that you can use but it is only up to 1:1.7.10-0
    and not
    1:1.7.12-0

    to add this ppa to your system
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voronov84/andreyv
    then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    then if you already have git installed just upgrade it.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    If it is not installed
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git
    that should get you up to

    1:1.7.10-0



    you could always search launchpad for a newer ppa
    example google
    "ubuntu launchpad git 1:1.7.12"
