You need to install the build-essential packages.
Either browse through Adept to find it, or type 'sudo apt-get install
build-essential' on the command line.
For future reference, most things in (K)Ubuntu can be installed through
the package manager. Adept is a graphical front end to apt which is a
set of command line utilities. I would recommend searching the package
manager before trying to install things using the compiler/downloads off
the web. Using the package manager has the added benefit of installing
all the dependencies of the program you are installing also.
