What do you want to do?

Base in Libreoffice or Openoffice is very similar to Access

To get you started look here

Depending on which version of Ubuntu you have one of these should be installed already but if not will be in the Software centre.

Hi Emmanual

The default install of Ubuntu does not include Base because there is no room for it on the CD. However, you will find it in the Software Centre and you can install it from there.

Base doesn't really use switchboards but you can have a similar effect by having a default form with buttons. There is a tutorial here

Hi Emmanual

There is a an extension to OpenOffice which provides a switchboard

I haven’t tried it myself yet, but it was given as a solution to a similar request here on Launchpad by someone who had used it.
