I recently installed Suse8.2, and I am making slow progress. I installed the C++ compiler and tried to use it but no joy. I found a C++ icon in /usr/bin/ . It's a pointer to a file.
I tried to run C++ from the Konsole using the following usr/bin/c++.
No joy, there seem to be something missing, or am I in the boonies.
Any of you GURUS would have a thought on the matter.
Is this C++ package a true c++ with it"s own UI like Visual C++ or any of the other programming languages.

Thank you.

You must have gcc installed on your computer before you can program on your GNU/Linux(not a joke including c/c++/java/fortran and lots others) system.
try command
$gcc --version

if you get any output then it means gcc is installed on your system and you can very well program on your write a program and compile using the command..

$g++ -o <prgram> <program.cpp>

i will suggest you some excellent documents on programming on GNU/Linux ...check out..
1. (for c)
or else check out this link for c++ have included a guide for programming on almost any platform)..
Now let us turn to ugly question if you don't have gcc installed what to do???!!!
I have never used suse and i don't recommend anyone to use it...(A blot on entire GNU/Linux community this version is...)..but still i guess they must have gcc included in thier installation if u have cdz then you need not to download gcc just check out CDz and install gcc from there...
and that's it.....
