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
Dave HoweSoftware and Hardware EngineerCommented:

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)
