What do you want to do?
Ubuntu comes with X installed - so it must be something not obvious to me.
Which version of Ubuntu BTW?

Most Linux distros use X.org's version called xorg. Try searching for xorg or xserver-xorg.

The GUI frontend to "apt-get" is "synaptics", the package management tool in Ubuntu
(panel --> from the "System" tab I think).
It will be a lot friendlier to you than commandline "apt-get".
...I guess...
