    In synaptic, search for "build-essential" and install that package.

    That should install GCC (Gnu compiler collection) and all appropriate build tools. You can compile from a command line using gcc (Gnu C compiler). You can also create make files and build that way.

    If you want to use with an IDE isntead of command line, I'd install "Eclipse" which is a java based IDE that works for Java/C/C++ (and others with extensions).
