    click (french version) on Applications/Logithèque ubuntu (under sound and video/science et ingenierie/physique and then on then on root.
    Root will appear in Application/programming

    Ubuntu should have apt or synaptic. From that CERN page I linked above,

    You need administrator or sudo access to your computer to do this. If you don't know what that means you should talk to whoever maintains your computer.
