Help installing 3D-Desktop

I just downloaded 3ddesktop, but I cannot get it to install. On the site, the FAQ says to do the following.
tar zxvf 3ddesktop-x.y.z.tar.gz
    make install
Well, when I put that in, it brought up an error message, so the next thing I did was cd to my desktop, and...
tar zxvf 3ddesktop-0.2.8.tar.gz
and this extracted a file onto my desktop, named 3ddesktop-0.2.8 When I went to type "./configure", it came up with this error message...
bash: ./config: No such file or directory
so now this is where I am stuck. I am, obviously, very new to Linux. If it helps, I am running the Warty Warthog version of the Ubuntu distro.

you need to cd into the "3ddesktop-0.2.8" directory then ./configure

I got this error...

checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
...and I don't know how to get into the config.log.
