As far as I know, gambas is already a standar package in Ubuntu
http://packages.ubuntu.com/hoary/source/gambas, but their packages are
quite obsolete. The stable version of gambas is more updated in Debian
In Linex I have already the 1.9.3 packages that include a gambas-gb-gtk
component quite usable in Debian. (http://www.itais.net/index.php?blog=3
uses them succesfully in some thousands of pc in my region high
schools). Those packages work in Debian sarge, so probably  they will
work in Ubuntu as well. Add 
deb http://www.linex.org/sources/linex/debian/ sarge linex
to your /etc/apt/sources.list.

Finally, last week Mark Suttelworth
(http://www.itais.net/index.php?title=i_am_not_going_to_ask_you_to_use_ubuntu&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1) asked me those packages to include them in Ubuntu, so you will have the unstable gambas version there soon. Before that I will prepare debian packages with the last unstable version.
