    Install all build tools...


    I just finished a fresh install of Linux Mint, I went to compile a few programs and realized that g++ and such weren't installed yet. Is there a package that I can select that will install all compilers/build tools/and most of the common libraries without me having to select them individually as I notice that they are missing?

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Install the build-essential package using the package management tools e.g.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential
