Enter "cc" in the command prompt. If "cc: no input files" comes up then for some strange reason the program didn't detect your compiler and you already have one.

I don't know about kubuntu but in suse you can just select gcc packages from yast. Most likely there is something similar in kubuntu... you know, a package handler thingie.

If you are running Kubuntu, do in a consle as root,
#apt-get update
#apt-get install gcc
gcc will be installed and all dependencies automatically resolved. To install g++ (the c++) compiler, you would use either gcc-c++ or just g++ (I am not sure which one exactly).
