You have two choices: either open up Synaptic, then search for the package, select for installation, click apply, then wait for it to install, or you would have to open up a terminal and install it using apt-get. Both of these options have many cons: using Synaptic, there are many steps involved and it isn't the fastest to load, and a terminal isn't exactly the friendliest interface. This is the reason I have created Minaptic.
I look forward to reading your feedback.

package = '-'.join(sys.argv[1:])
search = ' '.join(sys.argv[1:])
