I have been using gnumeric for year on Windows. I just started using Linux

see it already installed and I cant find Synaptic which I have used a
couple of years ago. I would really appreciate some advice on how to
install gnumeric on my Debian wheezy OS. I have used the command line
before but am very rusty on it.

I don't have wheezy here to test, but the following ought to work. If 
you have sudo on your account:

sudo aptitude install -P ~n^gnumeric

otherwise su to the root user first:

su -
aptitude install -P ~n^gnumeric

This ought to install the gnumeric application, common files, 
documentation, and standard plugins. If you prefer to manually choose 
which to install:

aptitude search gnumeric
aptitude install [name of package from above]

(remember to use sudo or su as needed).
