tl;dr - I have eclipse on Ubuntu 10.04, but when I try to run or debug a C code (I made a project, then a new file within it), I get the error "Launch failed. Binary not found". Apparantly I need a compiler, and am not sure which to get nor how to set it up.
I am new to the forums as well as programming on Linux. I am somewhat of a beginner, and have little experience with Linux as well, in fact I am using Ubuntu 10.04 which I hear is one of the easiest distros out.
I currently am having a bit of difficulty figuring out what program (google seems to call it an IDE) I need in order to run the practice codes I am going to be writing (For now I am learning from C Programming - A Modern Approach). When I learned C++ in high school, we used something called Visual C++. So far what I have found is called "Eclipse", but I haven't quite figured out how I am supposed to be setting it up.
With Visual C++, I remember we would create a new project, and then within that project create a new file and write our code in that.
I've tried to create and run the very first code using Eclipse (just the basic code that outputs the "To C or not to C" pun), but being unsure of what kind of file or project I should be doing it in, I just tried a couple different ones...all I got when trying to run or debug was an error message:
Launch failed. Binary not found.
Apparantly, I need to download a compiler as well, but am not sure which would be best on my system while using Eclipse, nor do I know how to set it up, so if anybody could point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
