    installing 3ddesktop


    i'm using mandriva and i'm trying to install the program called 3ddesktop, but the installer gives the error:

    checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
    See `config.log' for more details.
    when i searched in google and looked around, i found out that i needed a c++ compiler, which i thought i had installed. i don't know how to install a c++ compiler, and urpmi didn't do any good with the names "gcc" and "g++".

    help please?

    hi does your graphics card support 3d if so try out compiz . any way gcc should be availbale on your mandriva disk go to mandriva control centre and go to the Software Management tab. by the way make sure disk is in your drive you can install gcc from there from mandriva control centre you can also enable 3d desktop check out this guide
