I have Installed Ubuntu 12.04 On Virtual Box. How to browse the source code directory? What is the commands on terminal to do this?

An Ubuntu installation comes fully compiled - You won't find the source code in an installed Ubuntu.

To view the kernel code, go to the Linux GitHub repository. To look at ubuntu-specific code, go to the Ubuntu Launchpad code site.
