    Did you tick "development tools" when asked about what to install?

    CAPS matter, the commands are
    gcc prog.c
    g++ prog.cpp

    also, remember to specify the correct flags
    -o will produce an output program
    -c will compile only
    -ansi is ANSI compliant code
    -Wall is putput all warnings
    -pedantic will compile the code with strict c

    but if you just want to compile and produce a runnable application and see any errors or warnings

    then in the directpry in which the c file resides

    gcc -o outputName inputfile.c

    open a console and type
    Code:
    gcc
    if you dont see "gcc: no input files"

    then type (as root)
    Code:
    up2date gcc
