Assuming that you use Ubuntu 11.10 (there is no such thing as Linux 11.10), just open your Software Center and search for it.
Alternatively, launch this command:
Code:
sudo apt-get install synaptic

It may be possible that you have to run
Code:
sudo apt-get update
before using the installation command.
