I bought a barcode printer as Godex. I have to install its drivers. I did it on Ubuntu. However, I have some problems about it.For example: In README file:

$ sudo aptitude install libcupsimage2-dev

But shell says me

sudo:aptitude: command not found

Moreover when i write sudo apt-get install aptitude it says

sudo:apt-get: command not found

And then, When I write ./configure shell says followings.


checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

How can i fix it ? How can i install this package? Thanks for your help already now.

Pardus is an independent Linux distribution, it is not Debian-derived and doesn't use the apt tool suite, i.e., no apt-get or aptitude. It uses its own package management, "PiSi". – sr_ Mar 16 '12 at 11:38

Each Linux distribution (or family of distributions) has its own package management system. Ubuntu uses .deb packages and has the APT tool family including Aptitude. Pardus has its own package manager called PiSi.

Your immediate problem is “no acceptable C compiler”. You need to install a C compiler, and probably other development packages. See “Compiling Software and Packaging” in the Pardus Wiki; start by installing the basic development tools (the equivalent of Ubuntu's build-essentials):

sudo pisi install -c system.devel
