Synaptic is a meh gui replacement for apt.
Here's a couple of apt essentials:
To update your local index and/or check for updates to installed packages
To search the repos for a particular package
apt-cache search <what you're looking for>
combine it with grep to refine results.
After you've searched the repos and found a package you need
apt-get install <package you want to install>
I think you can also use apt-get remove to uninstall, it's been awhile since I messed around in Debian or Ubuntu. At any rate, just man apt and you should be off to the races. Good luck, hope this helped a bit.
