How to install dev packages in ubuntu 16.04


Hello every body!

I am using ubuntu 16.04 LTS 32bit in VM ware
I want to install Aqua3d for which I have followed the link
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...4175466464/#12

But when I start to install the prerequisites packages, for example:
$ sudo apt-get install g++-4.4 libwxgtk2.8-dev freeglut3-dev

I get these errors:
skarim@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install g++-4.4 libwxgtk2.8-dev freeglut3-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package g++-4.4 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'g++-4.4' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package libwxgtk2.8-dev
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'libwxgtk2.8-dev'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libwxgtk2.8-dev'
skarim@ubuntu:~$

Kindly suggest me in this regard
Thanks in advace

1. i think you need to enable sources in your software repositories.
2. g++-4.4 sounds really old and outdated... my debian jessie (oldstable) offers 4.8 and 4.9...

I am very new user: Ubuntu
Can you please suggest me best repositories for installing the packages along with dependencies required for Aqua3d?
How to add those repositories? Step by step please.
I have tried alot but in vain.
For example if give command: $ sudo apt-get install g++-4.4 libwxgtk2.8-dev freeglut3-dev
But packages are not installed.
So is there any way to set this issue. I mean to say that install all packages along with depdendicies just by giving command $ sudo apt-get install [package names]?
Thanks

Try looking in your Software Center and see if Aqua3d is available to install.
If not try here:

https://www.projectguideline.com/ins...k-simulations/

Here's the link where you can search for packages and programs.
https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/
