In console mode you have Aptitude, in graphics mode Synaptdunno of a ic.
I have only used Aptitude, it seems simple and manage packages even better than apt-get alone.

I've been using:

apt-cache
apt-get
dpkg -S

And something else (which I can't think of off the top of my head) to learn about packages... because of issues with Mozilla (making a post about that now).

I don't rememeber exactly, but there was something similar to the stuff you talking about in Ubuntu. (I happened to use it for a Day)

But then, you always have Synaptic to your rescue. Install Synaptic.


apt-get install synaptic
as root.
