Learning C++ With Linux

 in
Jeff gives us a head-start for learning C++ on our own.
Conclusions

Becoming proficient in C++ takes time and effort, but you can gain a career advantage by learning it on your own using Linux. I suggest trying an iterative approach which alternates between reading books and writing your own code. You may also want to consider some formal training.

Ideally you will be able to find a mentor to guide you and answer questions as you embark on your C++ education. More likely, you will find yourself the mentor for co-workers who will learn from your mistakes. I wish you success in your journey.

Check the abovementioned link, but if for some reason the link doesn't help or is broken, just look for other articles on Google or the UBUNTU homepage regarding installation of a C compiler.

GCC is one of the most popular compilers distributed with GNU/Linux.
