You're right, Vidalia is not in the Ubuntu repositories. Our ebuild for Gentoo
and RPMs for Red Hat have been contributed by some nice people who wanted to
help out. It seems nobody has been motivated enough to make a package for
Ubuntu yet, though.

Instructions for compiling Vidalia from source on Ubuntu can be found on our
wiki (there is even a section especially for Ubuntu):


As for using a deprecated version of Qt, that's news to me. Vidalia has always
required at least Qt 4.1, but also works with Qt 4.2 and 4.3. If you've found
that Vidalia doesn't build for you with one of those versions of Qt, I'd be
happy to know which one and fix it.
