I assume that you use a zope installer that has come with ubuntu.

if this is the case, I advise that you install zope anew from a buildout.
this is very easy and gives you much more control about where things are
installed and what version of the diverse packages to use.

I have not used buildout for "naked" zope myself but always in together with
plone (however there should be no real difference).
you will find instructions how to install zope/plone from scratch on www.plone.org

the steps are:
- (voluntary but recommend) install your "own" python (as root)
- install easy_install for "your" python (as root)
- install ZopeSkel with easy_install -U ZopeSkel (as root)
- create a buildout anywhere (as a standard user) using paster
  paster --help will explain what to do
