I want to install one package named speech_tools-2.1-release.tar.gz. After I run command ./configure in this package, it show me a message:

Configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH  
See 'config.log' for more details  

What do I do?

1 Answer 1


Run sudo apt-get install build-essential to install the C compiler.

    I had to run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade first
