Compiling FahMon in Linux

I'm trying to compile FahMon in Ubuntu 6.06. I have wx-GTK installed, but I'm not exactly sure how to compile the source. I've been trying
g++ <sourcefile>.cpp
to no avail.

Anyone have any advice or a method for this?

There is a manual page for g++

man g++

Linux users: download the sources and compile FahMon by yourself (instructions are included)
I've never installed FahMon, so I can only be of limited help. Look for the instructions that it says come with it. I expect that you will want to look for a "Makefile" (with no file extension). If it does not exist, you will want to look for a configure script that will create a makefile for you. This is the way most source packages are set up. By running command such as "make clean", "make", "make test", and "make install" you will be invoking subsections of the makefile, which will do all the work of using g++ for you. Again, follow the instructions that came with it.

Thanks for the answers. I ended up solving the problem. Contained in the source was a scons compilation script. I just had to apt-get install the scons package and run it in the src directory. Everything works fine now.
