When using the instruction "apt-get install cacti-cactid" to install Cacti in an Ubuntu 9.04 (or earlier) environment you will find that the distribution actually downloads Cacti version 0.8.7b, it places the application and data files in Ubuntu specific directories, and requires Unbuntu/Debian specific patches for config.php, debian.php, global.php, and global-settings.php (not a complete list)

The following tutorial explains how to use apt-get to install Cacti and Spine from the Ubuntu distribution, to upgrade the 0.8.7b version to version 0.8.7e, and to apply the Ubuntu/Debian specific patches.
