Not building not compiling, linux mint
« on: April 07, 2019, 08:53:05 pm »
Hi everyone,

I downloaded code::blocks to my computer (runs on Linux Mint OS) and installed it. I opened a new project, a console one, c++ and tried to build and run it, but nothing happened.
This is the error that pops up:

"Process terminated with status -1 (0 minute(s), 0 second(s))"

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Did you install the build-essential package?

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential

If it builds OK; but, does not run the problem on Linux is normally you failed to install the terminal program or need to configure Code::Blocks to use the terminal program that is installed.
