As the question says, I wonder if the default ubuntu compiler, g++, has graphical user interface.

Are you looking for an application in which you can select source file(s) and compiler options? – Lekensteyn May 8 '11 at 8:27
yes, now I was just referring particularly to g++ – Julien May 8 '11 at 9:22

g++ is strictly only the compiler and so operates solely from the terminal. However, there are many good graphical IDEs that make use of the g++ compiler such as Code::Blocks, Qt Creator, Anjuta, and Eclipse with the CDT plugin.
