Who doesn't format Windows?

This is a discussion on Who doesn't format Windows? within the Tech Board forums, part of the Community Boards category; GCC ain't on Ubuntu's package manager, if you mean the Add/Remove application, 'cause I couldn't find any package manager :P...

    Go to Synaptic Package Manager, search for gcc (might be multiple packages), tick it, press apply. Should download&install in no time. Then search for "codeblocks", tick it, apply. Then there will be a "Programming" submenu under the main menu, where there is Code::Blocks - ready to serve you.

    Edit: Package manager is under System->Administration if I remember correctly.

    Hmm... Why do I need both GCC and Code::Blocks?

    GCC is the compiler, Code::Blocks is the IDE. Because Code::Blocks can work with multiple compilers, it probably has no hard dependency on GCC.

    There's a reason, but no purpose.

    You could edit the source you downloaded. Have fun modifying VC++.

    If you can't find gcc in the Package Manager (or whatever it's called on your system), then try going to the command line and type these commands:
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install gcc

    Compiling: main.cpp
    /bin/sh: g++: not found
    Process terminated with status 127 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
    0 errors, 0 warnings

    Why am I getting that when I try to compile a Hello, World program o.O?

    Code::Blocks can't find the C++ compiler. Perhaps it's not configured correctly, or the C++ compiler is a separate package from the C compiler.

    You need the package "g++".

    Well, it's here:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...id&section=all

    So it has to be somewhere in Ubuntu.

    After looking at that site, it magically is the first thing I find by searching G++ on package manager, and I'm a 100&#37; sure it wasn't there before :P
