I have a couple of drupal modules that I would like to install on my Ubuntu LAMP stack. However, I am running into a bit of a problem. I installed drupal using Synaptic, and I cannot find the folder where I am supposed to drop in the unzipped directories. Everything I google says to drop it in sites/all/modules, but I cannot find that directory or where I should make it. Where is this directory (sites/all/modules)?

Figured it out:

When using Synaptic drupal's default modules and themes are here: /usr/share/drupal6/sites. Make the all/modules directory and drop in your modules.

As an fyi, to find the files installed using Synaptic or command line, use the following commands:

$ sudo updatedb
$ locate drupal6

(Change drupal6 to whatever you are searching for.)
