Ubuntu should have apt or synaptic. From that CERN page I linked above,

Use "sudo apt-get install package" or use the graphical "Synaptic Package Manager" program.
You need administrator or sudo access to your computer to do this. If you don't know what that means you should talk to whoever maintains your computer.

If you do it the way I told you lib11-dev will be installed. I just verified it with synaptic
