Ubuntu: Essential packages for compile a program from source

Problem

You want to compile a program from source file. In order for you to do that you need to install the gcc library first. (Fresh installation of Ubuntu didn't have it installed by default). You need to install build-essential package first.

Solution

Execute this command

sudo apt-get install build-essential
