The PPA only offers packages for 11.10 (Oneiric) and 12.04 (Precise).
One of the main reasons being that the LTTng kernel tracer requires at
least Linux 2.6.38. Ubuntu 10.04 comes with 2.6.32 by default.

If you cannot upgrade your distro, you could always install a more
recent kernel (from the package called
"linux-image-generic-lts-backport-oneiric" in the main repo, for
example) and compile/install the tools by hand. The 12.04 packages
probably won't work on 10.04, since the latter didn't have multiarch.
