Go to System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager

Search for the package you want. Or even just the name of it's functionality
and it should give you a list.
Select whichever you desire (i.e, "Mark for Installation")
When you are done selecting all the packages, click on  "Apply".
Voila !! You will have all the packages and their dependencies installed.
