Question Error installing No-IP Client, "sudo make install" not working


Hello,
I am trying to install the No-IP.com Client on my Ubuntu machine. I followed the tutorial located at http://www.forwardyouth.com/ubuntu/h...rce-in-ubuntu/ exactly. However, when the tutorial tells me to run "sudo make install" command, I get the error "sudo: make: command not found". Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Are you sure that you are inside the proper directory? When you have extracted the binary, you need to cd to it (there should be a "make" file in there).

I'm the author of the article. My mistake, I assumed everyone had build-essential. You most likely need to install the build-essential package for make to operate.

Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential

Let me know if that works for you.
