Synaptic removed in Ubuntu Linux v11.10


ubuntu-logo-smThe new version of Ubuntu Linux (version 11.10 - Oneiric Ocelot) will not have Synaptic Package Manager. This was one of the changes for the new version. I'm not sure if anyone uses Synaptic - most software installations are done through apt-get. In any case, if you really need it, this is how to get it back:

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Sorry but cannot find what I am looking for. Where is the terminal?
Far too clever for me. Probably use Windows more or Suse/Fedora - hopefully you can see what you are doing.
