The GUI for apt-get is called "synaptic."  You can find it in the Gnome
menu under "System / Administration."  Look for "Synaptic Package
Manager."  Alternatively, you can bring it up from a terminal by typing
"sudo synaptic"

A quick primer can be found at: otherwise search
Google for some how-to's, in case that one doesn't fit the bill.
