Hello everyone. I just switched to Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit from Windows 7 and so far, it's been lovely. Everything I needed was there, and I got all my software from the Ubuntu Software Center.
But, I have a big problem right now. I'm a Computer Science student, and am extremely new to programming.
I installed Code::Blocks using the Ubuntu Software Center.
I make a simple "test.c" file, put some code into it, open it using Code::Blocks, and hit the "build and run" button, just like the way I did on Windows. But, it doesn't run. A dialog box pops up and says "It seems the file hasn't been built yet. Would you like to build it now?". I hit yes, and the dialog box pops up again. The program never runs.
In Windows, it did.
I look at the folder where my "test.c" file is located, and I see there is now a "test.o" file, but no "test.exe" file, like there was in Windows.
Please help me. I am completely helpless right now. I've tried Googling for an answer, but I can't find one.
I don't really mind if I don't get the ".exe" file or whatever. What's important to me right now is I get my ".c" files to "build and run", just to see how it runs.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. I like Ubuntu, and I can't stand going back to Windows just for this very reason, when everything else about this OS is pretty good.
