I want to develop C/C++ applications using Eclipse: should I install using
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install gcc
It depends on how which applications you use, the gcc package contains the gcc, where the buil-essential package contains some additional dev-tools (e.g. make and g++).
A list of packages included in build-essential package can be found here.
