To get the correct package name, use:
Code:
apt-cache search package
Then install it (as root) using:
Code:
apt-get install package-name
You can also use one of the graphical package managers such as synaptic.

You may need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and then run "apt-get update" if the package you want is not found. There is a stick at the top of this forum with plenty of repositories.

I hope this helps

thanks, but I think this is not what I'm looking for

I think apt-get install only needed and not ALL depencies.

How do you mean install all dependencies?

A dependency is simply another program or library that a program needs to work correctly. apt-get will install all the dependencies needed by a particular program. The apt repos have over 16000 packages in them - i am sure you don't want all of them
