Add the Bitcoin Ubuntu PPA repository in your Ubuntu
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
Update package lists
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Install bitcoin-qt
Code:
sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt

Just copy and past the code into terminal and you should have the latest version of bitcoin-qt.

If you prefer not to use a PPA you can download the latest linux client from here:http://bitcoin.org/en/download.  Just decompress the .tgz file and you've got the latest version of bitcoin-qt.

It is possible but not really practical to put Bitcoin Core on a flash drive.

Try:

Quote
mkdir ~/bitcoin-qt
cd ~/bitcoin-qt
wget https://bitcoin.org/bin/0.9.1/bitcoin-0.9.1-linux.tar.gz
tar -xvzf bitcoin-0.9.1-linux.tar.gz
mv bitcoin-0.9.1-linux/bin/64/* ~/bitcoin-qt
chmod +x bitcoin-*

good luck

I may have misunderstood your first question.  Did you mean put Bitcoin Core on a flash drive and leave the blockchain on your computer or put both on the flash drive?  I answered the latter question.

If you meant the first option you can just extract the .tgz file to a flash drive like viriat0 said.
