You can add this PPA to your sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/minetestdevs/daily-builds/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/minetestdevs/daily-builds/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

then install the last minetest Dev snapshot build 0.4.dev-20120122-1

(I have a Ubnutu)

did as you say but I get this message

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

I do have minetest and minetest delta already installed

I dont know what is the problem, what version of lubuntu is it ? but anyway you still have others options:

install the .deb:

for oneiric

https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/daily-builds/+build/3122969/+files/minetestc55_201201261032-0%7E1159%7Eoneiric1_i386.deb

...natty

https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/daily-builds/+build/3122967/+files/minetestc55_201201261031-0%7E1159%7Enatty1_i386.deb

or Maveric

https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/daily-builds/+build/3122949/+files/minetestc55_201201261028-0%7E1159%7Emaverick1_i386.deb

Or you can easily Build:

Install dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libirrlicht-dev cmake libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg8-dev libxxf86vm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libsqlite3-dev

Download source, extract:

$ wget https://github.com/celeron55/minetest/tarball/master -O master.tar.gz
$ tar xf master.tar.gz
$ cd celeron55-minetest-286edd4 (or similar)

Build a version that runs directly from the source directory:

$ cmake . -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1
$ make -j2

Run it:

$ cd bin
$ ./minetest

Or use a windows version with WINE
