    What's wrong is that you don't have any development packages installed. Use your distros package manager to install some compilers and other development packages, such as

    gcc
    g++
    make
    etc...

    also be sure to install any suggested packages.

    Other than apt-get on the command line, you may have the Synaptic package manager. However if you have Kubuntu 5.10 breezy then it would be "Adept". Give this page a look for more info on it.

    Open Terminal:

    Type: sudo apt-get install gcc-3.4 g++ build-essentials

    Easiest way to fix this error

    Go to Synaptic package manager (System > Administration > Synaptic) and search for build-essential and mark to install that package (then finish up the intstallation) and viola! everything should be in working order. I have heard of this not working for some Ubuntu builds so you might have to find each individual one.

    hope this helps
