I'm a newbie to linux and I have a Xubuntu 13.10 relase installed on my PC. I need to install some packages for web development but I can not find the package manager utility in the applications menu. Could somebody tell me where I can find it?

One of the package managers available is the Ubuntu software center, which is available on the main menu.

Or you can use synaptic package manager. To install it if not installed, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install synaptic
