You can download the Application for Ubuntu from Here.
After the deb packages is downloaded, open a terminal window and navigate to the download folder. Then install it with the following command.
sudo dpkg -i messengerfordesktop*.deb
Once installed, you can start it from Unity dash or your application menu.

Messenger for Desktop is installed in /opt/messengerfordesktop/ directory. You can also start it with this command:
