Apt and dpkg *are* the programs that perform these functions.
There are GUI interfaces to them, such as Adept which is the default in
Kubuntu (thew 'Add/Remove packages in the menu is part of Adept, as well
ass the update notifier on your taskbar). Synaptic is another GUI, used
in Ubuntu, but works just as well in Kubuntu. Both these are simply
Graphical interfaces to apt-get and dpkg.
Aptitude is another option, a more command-line oriented and I do
believe it is based on Apt as well.
So basically, no matter what you use for package management you are
still using apt and dpkg in the end :)
