The easiest way in ubuntu is to use the ubuntu package manager (from the desktop) and install the texlive package. As an editor you can choose whatever you want (texmaker, texstudio or any editor like gedit, vim and so on). Alternatively, you can use the terminal to install the packages, using

sudo apt-get install texlive texstudio 

Dependencies usually are matched automatically

edit: look for the ubuntu software-center to open the package manager GUI and search for the texlive and other packages.

If you want the latest texlive version, follow these instructions: texlive quick install
