I have Codeblocks working well under Windows but not in Linux Mint18.  Being new to Linux, I'm not sure what is happening.  I installed Codeblocks as instructed on the website, however, it's simply not working.  The Splash screen opens and I can enter code.  The code will build without any reported errors.  The code compiles without any reported errors, but when I try and run it, I get an error message.

The error starts
Checking for existance: /home/geoff/Desktop/Hello_World (and seems to locate the executable)
The next error line has me baffled...
Executing: /xterm -T '/home/geoff/Desktop/Hello_World' -e /usr/bin/cb console runner "/home/geoff/Desktop/Hello_World" (in /home/geoff/Desktop)

And then Process terminated with status -1

How do I fix the problem?

Is xterm installed?
If not, install it or configure Code::Blocks to use another terminal program.
