If the software is in the repositories, use apt-get :

InstallingSoftware - Community Ubuntu Documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware)

If it is not, you will need to compile it.

CompilingSoftware - Community Ubuntu Documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware)

There is a Ubuntu based security testing distro that I am using now called Back Track. If you are interested in security it might be a good place to start.

In the standard repositories are many of the apps you might want. Just use the search box on ynaptic. Other than that google the app and download from the developers site.

thats cool ....but can we tranfer the directrories like /pentest from bt. since these are mainly scripts and stuff like that.

U can also try Metasploit framework for pentest.

You can enable the Backtrack repositories to download an app from them. Most will work but there may be some problems. Backtrack is on 8.04 and some special work was done by the team to get everything working. But try it. I would enable the repository to download the apps you need and then remove it so that you do not have problems having a 8.04 repository enabled. If you have problems remove the app and go to the developers site.

Just wanted to note that BT4 Final is running on Ubuntu 8.10, and that they don't support installing packages from the backtrack repos onto anything other then backtrack.

Best way to go about it is to install them from the regular repos or download them from the author's site.
