is gcc installed? type 'which gcc' in bash
if "/usr/bin/gcc" does not show:
sudo apt-get install gcc bison flex

if it is installed take a look at the "config.log" in the directory where you ran ./configure

btw gcc is the GnuCompilerCollection. you need that to compile programs written in C, C++, Fortran,...

Which application? What is the package? Where did you get it?
Did you read the "readme" that came with the package?

What was the last command you typed before this error?
Did you read the config.log file?
Did you update (install?) gcc?

Smile Here are the Information

I am trying to install aquamarine-0.2.1 package that I think is the newest vesion for beryl(desktop features), I get this error when I run ´./configure´ (that I think its for compiling the code) and I ran the ´which gcc´ and it showed me ´/usr/bin/gcc´ after I cat config.log ..... the out put is quite long anyway I post it here ..... do you think the problem is because of KDE installed on ubuntu (KUBUNTU) ???or if you think I should update the gcc how should I do that ???

running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure

All right, I guess I asked for it... if you put code tags around your output, it takes up less space.

I am trying to install aquamarine-0.2.1 package that I think is the newest version for beryl(desktop features),
Hmmm... OK, aquamarine is a window decorator from the beryl project.

I get this error when I run ´./configure´ (that I think its for compiling the code)
the config file is there to prepare your system for compiling. The "make" command does the actual work. A failed config means you do not have the required tools to attempt compiling the program.

I've separated out the bits that went wrong:
Code:
configure:2520: found /usr/bin/mawk

configure:3175: found /usr/bin/gcc
[...]
gcc (GCC) 4.1.3 20070929 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.2-16ubuntu2)
[fine, you have mawk and gcc installed...]


configure:4145: checking how to run the C preprocessor

configure:4191: $? = 0
configure:4222: gcc -E conftest.c

(etc)

configure:7074: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
All this suggests you do not have a preprocessor installed.

sudo apt-get install cpp

Do it the easy way, use Synaptic to install:

autoconf
automake
bison
build-essential
flex
gawk
libtool

You should be OK for compiling then.
