How to install basic applications in Ubuntu


Good day guys..
I am planning to download/install latest Ubuntu Desktop version this week. Can someone give me basic instructions how to install additional Applications in Ubuntu in case I will need some. BTW, the old HDD i will be using is pre-installed with Debian so I need to do a "Fresh_install".
I know how to use RPM in RedHat but I think in Ubuntu its a different thing.Is there any particular website to download these additional Apps?

Welcome to LQ. .. ..

Basic : You do not download "basic" software. (For any Linux.)
The 'Package Manager' = Synaptic is to be used for package installs.
( 30,000 packages are available this way.
= The 30,000 most basic.)

Or the command(s) :
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install <package> <package> <package> <package>
......
