To the best of my knowledge, Ubuntu uses Debian Linux source code. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Addendum: Take a look here - Index of /ubuntu

Yes, Ubuntu is based on Debian.

If you need the kernel source code, follow these steps:

1. Make sure you have the source code repository enabled. To do this, go to System>Administration>Software Sources and check the source code repository. Reload the package information.


2. Open a terminal window and type

sudo apt-get install linux-source-2.x.xx

Replace 2.x.xx with the kernel version. If you don't know what your kernel version is, use the following command:

uname -r

The output will be something like this "2.6.27-9-generic"

In this case you will have to replace 2.x.xx with 2.6.27

Also look at the following post for more information Where can I get Kernel Source Code? - Ubuntu Forums

I forgot to mention that you have to be connected to the internet to install the source code. Almost all the software that you install through the repositories is downloaded from the internet.
