With autotools I get this:

what does which g++say? Obviously there is no working c++ compiler on the system. – Thomas Jun 18 '12 at 17:34
It doesn't say anything. I have GCC installed if that helps. – xjonquilx Jun 18 '12 at 17:52

Install build-essential Install build-essential if you haven't done so already. You can install it in the Software Center or with:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential

gcc does not contain g++, these are different packages. Install g++ Install g++:

apt-get install g++

Now I'm getting this: CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:98 (MESSAGE): ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in /home/jonquil/.kde/share/apps;/usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde4-profile/d‌​efault/share/apps;/usr/share/kde4/apps Call Stack (most recent call first): CMakeLists.txt:6 (find_package) – xjonquilx Jun 18 '12 at 19:28
you are missing a build environment, it's more than just compilers, you need libraries and so on. Take a look here to find out what you need: – Thomas Jun 18 '12 at 19:39
I KNEW there was a package I could install in Ubuntu that would give me all the necessary packages for compiling, I just couldn't remember the name of it. Thanks! – xjonquilx Jun 18 '12 at 19:50
I'm still getting the same error though. :( – xjonquilx Jun 18 '12 at 19:51
The error messages hint's at kde - kde development is not included in build-essential. Don't know if there is a meta package for this. – Thomas Jun 18 '12 at 20:00
