I can't find the right path to CPP SDK which is required by IntelliJ Idea, IDE that I want to use for developing a C++ project. Could someone show me the right place?

enter image description here

  • What in the nine hells do you mean by 'C++ SDK'? On a linux system there's g++. It compiles C++ and has all the default (linux development headers). Also g++ should be by default on your $PATH.

    @Wolfer if you look at the picture that klimat has joined in his post, the IntelliJ idea c++ plugin is clearly asking for a 'Cpp sdk home path'. Feb 23, 2014 at 18:06
  • Did you manage to get it fixed, @klimat ?

If your gcc is /usr/bin/gcc, I have set it to /usr/bin.

The only way to run is right click on main cpp file and say compile the cpp.

This compiles as well as runs the a.out file.
