On recent Ubuntu (probably Debian too), try installing all 3 of:

I also recently updated my personal docs for installing filedrawers when I 
upgraded 2 servers from Debian 4 to Ubuntu 10.4 LTS. Contact me off-list if 
you'd like a sanitized copy of my instructions. They assume you're 
comfortable with basic Linux admin tasks.

Fair warning: I include a fair number of patches to the base code and my 
docs assume this. Some of them are necessary for Ubuntu to do things like 
display multimedia files correctly. Some are cosmetic (theming the CSS). 
Others are functional (displaying quotas, adding recursive ACL functions to 
the permission manager, correct handling of Office 2007 filetypes, etc). 
Those patches are available too.

Cheers, Stephen
