You should be able to get the source code at the same place you got the package. If it comes as a tarball, .tar.bz or equivalent, that is the source code. If it was downloaded as a package, the source code will normally be available as a separate file or files on the same site.

Yup yup! That's why I wrote "If your connected to the internet with ubuntu..."
Ubuntu happens to be my favorite distro...and I can be a bit arrogant about it sometimes...
My droid automatically capitalizes the first letter of of the first word at the beginning of a sentance...it can be some what inconvenient at times...no matter...with your post they will see that sudo should be lower case...I will fix that error in the future...thanks!

As mentioned above, there is no one magical place where all the source code are stashed. But the sourceforge.net website is a very good place to start your search.

If your using ubuntu you don't have to know where the source code is... one simply has to type a simple command which finds and downloads it for you. So... we can find it in our good buddy ...terminal. sourceforge is missing files it says it has available...from my recent experience...for the most part it's a good place to download stuff...
Index of /pool
Loads of goodies...if you don't find it there simply do a google search...

Every Linux distribution has some form of package management. Every software package tends to have a brief description and a link to the software's project page. Using your package manager, you should be able to find a link to the source code for almost any package.
Here is an example for Debian systems (like Ubuntu). Notice in red below, the "Hompage" field:

I don't understand why this question is in this category.
Do a Google search on distfiles.gentoo.org
