Instructions to install the nightly FieldWorks build. This process should work with Ubuntu 12.04.

Warning

WARNING: "nightly" packages are untested, unsupported, may cause problems on your system, may corrupt your FieldWorks data, and may make it very difficult for you to upgrade to a future stable version of FieldWorks. If you just want to try out an alpha or beta of FieldWorks, contact a developer to find out how to do that which is much safer than installing a nightly package on your machine. Do not install nightly packages unless you understand what you are getting into.
