    troubles with make

    I've just installed kubuntu on my pc and when I type the command: make, well, that's what happens:
    bash: make: command not found
    I've seen that I'm not the only one who has trouble with the make command and I've tried the most logical aproaches I've read but nothing seems to work, if anyone wants to help, he is welcome.

    Install the package build-essential using the Synaptic package manager.

    Re: troubles with make

    Can you install any packages at all using apt-get, or is it only build-essential that cannot be installed?
