You have linked to an index page. There are no "steps" on it.
Perhaps if you stated what you got up to and what the error message was?

Have you tried

sudo apt-get install dcgui
???

I don't know anything about Ubuntu's repositories, but "sudo aptitude install linuxdcpp" may work, as well.

In case of Fedora, one can try the following method:

I found the exact solution and one should follow these steps:

Step 1: Download Source.

Step 2: Install the packages required for compilation of source code.

yum install scons zlib-devel bzip2-devel openssl-devel libglade2-devel gtk2-devel gcc-c++

This will take time depending upon the number of dependencies.

Step 3: Edit the file SConstruct and add the following:

if not conf.CheckLib('X11'):
print '\tX11 library not found'
Exit(1)

Step 4: Compile!

scons install

This will take time depending upon your system

Step 5: Install!

Step 6: Now that linuxdcpp has been installed, I'll show you a [demo](youtube /watch?v=t0WryAKW2PI).

HI I was facing an exact same problem with Fedora 20. However I believe the dependencies may be different for different versions. Could you find some solution for installation in fedora 20.
