sudo apt-get install g++
For c++, it is the GNU compiler ...

To just compile:
g++ your.c -o your
resulting in the executable file "your"

To use the warnings:
g++ -Wall your.c -o your

If it still doesn't work after the "install g++" also try
apt-get install build-essential

Yeah, build-essential also contains it. Plus, c++ and g++ are the same thing.
