    g++ command not found

    I cannot compile a little program that has always compiled on other Linux distributions. The makefile reads:

    start: start.o
    g++ -g -o start start.o
    start.o: start.c
    g++ -g -c start.c

    The response is:

    g++ -g -c start.c
    make: g++: Command not found

    I must have made a very foolish error, for I see no other posts about it.

    Thanks for the amazingly quick reply. The "apt-get" did install g++. That solves the problem posed by my post.
