    The error you have menctioned was g++ compiler missing so You need to install the build-essential package using the following command from your terminal

    sudo aptitude install build-essential

    After installing this you can try to compile your program it should work.

    I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but isn’t that a pretty basic problem to be posting on a how-to guide for linux?

    However, if you already have GCC installed (installing build-essential will work), then a link may have broken or otherwise damaged your g++ bin file, wherever it may be.


  3. You should also be able to apt-get g++. gcc is only for plain ol’ C. g++ is for C++

    Try install build-essential and linux headers:

    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

    sudo aptitude install g++


  6. It can’t find g++ because the compiler is called g++-4.2.
    All you have to do is create a link to g++-4.2 in /usr/bin and name it g++.
