    no c compiler in path


    I have now tried to install xmms and an astronomy program called Stellarium but could not install any of them. Everytime I got to the point where I had to write ./configure my terminal told me that I needed a c compiler in path to install the programmes. How do I do this?

    First, what distribution are you using ? You might be able to install these packages without compiling.

    If you want to compile you have to install gcc.

    I am using Ubuntu. And thank you so much. It worked!

    Now the terminal just does not know the "make" command. Ehm, how do I fix that?

    install 'build-essential' package. it is available in installation CD. add CDROM in the repository of Synaptic, click on 'reload' button, search 'build-essential' package and install it.

    I have reloaded and think I have installed "build-essential" . Now I suddenly need something called GLIB version 1.2.2 in order to install XMMS.

    ...Help...I am ignorant. :P

    type 'xmms' in search box of Synaptic and install it. Synaptic will take care of all dependency problems.
