synaptic is the package manager you use for isntalling things. Its under system - administration.

Connect to the internet, go into synaptic and hit refresh (may take a while). after that you shoule be able to search for software to install. it should automatically install any dependencies that the software requires.

alternatively you can use the command line.

just do:

sudo apt-get update

wait for it then do

sudo apt-get install (packagename)

it will busy itself for a while then it will say something like, "you need x packages, they will take x space, Y/N". Choose Y to install
