    Hi am new in linux and i am an internet cafe owner i am trying to install the opkdekiosk-2-0-6 but during the (./configure and even in sh ./configure stage) i keep on getting this message...<configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check

    Since you are new to Linux, you might want to look for a binary install package of opkdekiosk for your distro, instead of attempting to compile from source. Save learning to compile for later.
    What distro are you using? Once we know that, somebody here will know where you can get a ready made package.

    Most distros use either .deb or .rpm install packages. If you know the extension of your distro's packages, try googleing:
    opkdekiosk +.{extension}
    where {extension}=.deb or .rpm, or whatever your distro uses.

    Other advantages of using a binary package, in addition to a much easier install, are your package manager will help fill any dependencies, and upgrades are easier to do later, as well.

    I did some looking for opkdekiosk for ubuntu, but it appears opkdekiosk has not be changed since at least 2005. The version has been 2.0.6 since then. The reason you are having trouble with the compile is probably because the opkdekioask is out of date, and it is looking for old software that does not exist in Ubuntu 10.10.

    I found an alternative version of ubuntu called Ubuntu Kiosk edition. It is designed for kiosks, and it may well be a better choice than trying to work with the old opkdekiosk.

    See Ubuntu kiosk edition v1.0 | Jacob Steelsmith for more info.
