Anyone have any idea how the hell to get Bitcoin working on Ubuntu? 

Some specifics:

1) No, nothing on this forum related to Ubuntu appears to apply to 12.10, which is what I'm running.  I had no issues until I updated to 12.10, now nothing works.

2) No, nothing on the Ubuntu forum helps.

3) No, nothing in the first four pages of a Google search helps.

How the farking zarquon did Ubuntu manage to ditch Bitcoin?  I sort of need a working client here. 

Any pointers would be appreciated.

We'll need more information to help.

First try this.  Open a terminal and run:

wget http://superb-dca2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/bitcoin/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.8.1/bitcoin-0.8.1-linux.tar.gz
tar -xf bitcoin-0.8.1-linux.tar.gz
bitcoin-0.8.1-linux/bin/64/bitcoin-qt

(Or use 32 if you're on a 32-bit system)

Then let us know what it says if it doesn't work.

Sorry for the long delay in responding, and thank you for the help.

The terminal command above appears to have worked; I am waiting right now for an extremely long sync up period to end, and hopefully will be able to use the wallet without an issue afterwards.
