that is an apt-get command - used by the debian (and ubuntu) distributions to install software. all arguments after "apt-get install" are the names of the packages to be installed. if you are not using ubuntu/debian, you must use whatever package manager comes with your system to install the packages listed, and/or obtain them elsewhere.

I'm using ubuntu so u want me to type all the code right?

Is there any way to copy this code  and paste it to the ubuntu shell

sure.

either copy it in xwindows from the original instructions, then right click a terminal window and select "paste" or use putty to connect to the ubuntu machine from a windows machine, and again copy and right click (right click in putty automatically pastes)
