$ sudo su

Basically instead of yum we have another command, namely apt-get. Its use is as follows (more details executing $ man apt-get):
sudo apt-get install nameprogram
sudo apt-get remove nameprogram
sudo apt-get search nameprogram
sudo apt-get update nameprogram

$ sudo apt-get install thunderbird

$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop #do this if you are using kubuntu, to install gnome

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade #this command updates all the packages of the system

$ kdesu kedit /etc/apt/sources.list

adept, kpackage #those are similar to yumex
to execute:
$ kdesu adept

kdm libdvdread3 #I don't remember what is "kdm"
