View Full Version : Help! How to run gcc in my ubuntu laptop

September 13th, 2005, 08:56 AM
I've newly installed Ubuntu...

How do I run gcc in my computer? Because, I've tried to compile a program in terminal and typed gcc -o <name> <filename>, and after that it says, COMMAND NOT FOUND, something like that...

What should I do so that I can run gcc?

Thank you very much

Open synaptic or kynaptic and use the search function, look for GCC and make sure it is installed (not only the base package).

or type

sudo apt-get install build-essentials

in the terminal.
