I am trying to build pepperflash manually as it won't open from my software centre. Following these instructions:

git clone https://github.com/i-rinat/freshplayerplugin.git
cd freshplayerplugin
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..

It goes grand till cmake .. then tells me the

"CXX compiler identification is unknown
CMake Error: your CXX compiler: "CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER_NOTFOUND" was not found.
Please set CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name."

Can't install chrome for some reason (maybe laptop is too old and small), am using chromium and firefox. Thanks
