lucid was 10.04, 12.04 is Precise.

For 10.04, gdal 1.11 is packaged, but qgis only 2.0.1 (and older than
the gdal package). This might bring some trouble, if the old qgis
package was compiled with gdal 1.10.

For 12.04, gdal 1.10.0 and QGIS 2.6.1 are packaged. My own 12.04 box
still has QGIS 2.2 installed, with no EPSG:6148 (as expected).

What do you mean by "comes up with IGN"?

That trick was too easy ;-)

You can grab the source package from http://download.osgeo.org/gdal/CURRENT/

Look for the file compdcs.csv in /gdal-1.11.1/data/, and push it into
your /usr/share/gdal/1.10 folder. Then re-run /usr/lib/qgis/crssync. You
need root rights for both operations.
