Hello. I have a question to ask you regarding my Linux Ubuntu v.11.04 and v.11.10 64-bit versions.  

Do you know of or have any really good instructional tutorials on how to use the Synaptic Package Manager?

This would focused on how to use all its functions and how to works? The target reader would be a newbie to Linux Ubuntu, however the instructional tutorials would expand into greater comprehension and knowledge of the Synaptic Package Manager as well for a more advanced Ubuntu user to appreciate.      

Please reply.

Thank you!

For the Linux newbie, the Ubuntu Software Center application is a better idea: it hides some complexity of packaging.

A good tutorial is this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto

As you will notice, from Ubuntu 11.10, synaptic is no more installed by default on Ubuntu.

You have also a Complete Detailed Step By Step Guide how to Use Synaptic Package Manager with Screenshots following this link: http://www.debianadmin.com/simple-package-management-with-synaptic-package-manager-in-ubuntu.html
