View Full Version : geany and C++, wont compile/build

January 23rd, 2011, 11:34 AM
Ive been using geany on windows/ubuntu for a long time as my Python editor. I havent used C++ with it before, and I havent used C++ language as well. I can get my code to compile and run with Code::Blocks, but as I have used Geany for so long, id rather use it for C++ too. It doesnt seem to compile code out-of-the-box. If there are any Geany users here, might you guys tell me how I need to set it up for it to comple C++ code?

It maybe that you need to install the c++ compiler. Go to software centre and install g++
