I am trying to compile the abgx360 GUI.

First I run home/eric/Desktop/abgx360-1.0.5/configure but I receive this error:

checking for C++ compiler default output file name...

configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables

See `config.log' for more details.

Then i run make but I receive this error:

make: * No rule to make target `/home/eric/Desktop/abgx360-1.0.5/Makefile.am',

needed by `/home/eric/Desktop/abgx360-1.0.5/Makefile.in'. Stop.

Here is my 'config.log':

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by abgx360gui configure 1.0.2, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.  Invocation command line was

  $ /home/eric/Desktop/abgx360gui-1.0.2/configure

The error message is very obvious:

/home/eric/Desktop/abgx360gui-1.0.2/configure: line 2441: g++: command not found

Solution: install the C++ compiler, g++:

sudo apt-get install g++
