I am very new to Linux.
My question is this : I have installed CodeBlocks IDE from the AppCenter, and tried to compile a simple "Hello World" program to no avail.
After researching and looking at the output errors in CodeBlocks I found that it was a compiler RELATED issue. From that point, and looking here and there, I found here in Stack Exchange the solution was pretty simple : All I had to do was to type into terminal :
sudo apt-get install build-essential
My question is this : How can someone determine what is missing and thus type the correct thing/title after sudo apt-get install [correct title?]
It is very frustrating to install something from the AppCenter and not having it in working order. It is like getting a download from Play Store for android and finding out that it has missing files and having no real way to determime what to add/download ....
