badriinvenkat,

Have you tried it using the Synaptic? or the Add/Remove Program? It is there in the Menus.

Welcome to LQ.

1) close Synaptic ( Or any Package Manager )
if you want to use the command line for 'apt-get'.

2) sudo apt-get update ( to refresh the package list ).

3) sudo apt-get install gcc g++ autoconf automake bison flex libtool
( 'build-essential' is mainly for building deb packages )

Mint Felicia shows 26,000 packages in Synaptic :
No need to convert any rpm packages with alien.
And don't download anything. The 26,000 most basic
packages can be installed from Synaptic.
Or with 'sudo apt-get install <name>'
..
P.S. : OpenCV, see Synaptic Search → libcv1 , etc. etc.
..

badriinvenkat,

Just click Menu -> Administration -> Synaptic just that. If I remember a root password is asked when the window is brought up, just enter it. Then, at the Search slot where you can type a keyword type therein 'gcc', choices of everything available about gcc shall be offered below at the main window. Click or highlight whichever your choices are the at the top click the button 'Apply'. Everything is automated so long as you are on line. All you need is just to wait.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

badriinvenkat,

Since installing GCC into Mint is the intent of this thread (and the title) then perhaps if that task is now accomplished, it would be good to mark this thread [SOLVED] using the Thread Tools menu near the top of the thread.

Then, read the documentation included with the software you wish to compile and install (usually a README file, an INSTALL file, etc..), and follow the directions. If you have difficulties compiling the software and installing it, create a new thread, and include in its title the name of the software, and that you are having trouble compiling it on Mint.

Best regards.

It's quite all right - it's just that it will keep two different topics separate, and that helps others find your threads easily when they are having the same problems!

Well, you maybe could change the title of this thread, to something like:

"Help compiling/installing <some application> on Linux Mint"

Then you could continue in this thread, and it would make sense. You'd need to un-mark this one SOLVED.

Or, just leave this thread as is, and if you need to, start a new one for help with compiling & installing..
