I don't think you are going to be able to do this.

To do so requires a number of updated libraries, glib,gtk, babl and
gegl are 4 off the top of my head and I am pretty sure the 8.04
repositories wont hold these.

You can do it by building your own libraries from the sources, but I
guess you don't want to do that

So the only way out is to upgrade to 8.10. I understand that you can
upgrade 8.04 with 8.10. but I have not tried that.

Or use a live 8.10 (or similiar) CD
