    Kubuntu - configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH


    I just recently installed KUBUNTU (breezy) abd i want to install more games and programs. I went to linux.org for some game and program .tars (tar.tar tar.bz2 tar.gz). After i downloaded them i burned them to a cd.

    When i got the cd home i copied all the tars to /home/keith/desktop/installs

    While trying to figure out how to install them i extracted them all to /home/keith/desktop/sorces/(individual sub folders)

    In a previos post (when i was using gentoo) somebody taught me how to use ./configure , make , make install

    So after messing around i found the terminal and opened it on the folder FreeReign-0.2.1
    so it looked like this: keith@ubuntu:~/desktop/sorces/freereign-0.2.1 $./configure
    loading cache ./configure.cache
    ----------------------
    --FreeReign version 0.2.1
    ----------------------
    checking whether make sets (s or $?){MAKE} ... no
    checking for gcc ... no
    checking got cc ... no
    configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

    and this happens to all my packages, even when i try to update my kdebase, or install kdetoys....

    what do i do?!... am i trying to use the wrong install command for my distro?
