Recently I have installed Code::Blocks IDE on my Ubuntu 12.10. The following error appears when I try to run or compile any code written in there:

Compiling: /home/sabbir/first.cpp
/bin/sh: 1: g++: not found
Process terminated with status 127 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
0 errors, 0 warnings

How can I solve this problem?


Most likely you are simply missing a compiler.

Get one by installing build-essential package.

Typing sudo apt-get install build-essential into terminal is one of the easiest ways to achieve that.

i think you have to install g++ c++ compiler using synaptic package manager

  • Synaptic is no longer installed in Ubuntu by default. It might be better to suggest one of the methods more readily available such as apt-get or software centre eg "sudo apt-get install g++" – fabricator4 Dec 4 '12 at 11:43
