Hi all,

followed the instructions on Scribus.net. After downloading from svn,
cmake fails. This is what i get:

thr at thr-x1:~/src/scribus-svn/Scribus/build$ /usr/bin/cmake .
-- Shared Library Flags:
-- The CXX compiler identification is unknown
CMake Error: your CXX compiler: "CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER-NOTFOUND" was not
found.   Please set CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name.
-- Scribus 1.5.0.svn will be built to install into /usr/local/scribus-svn
-- Machine: i686-linux-gnu, void pointer size: 4
-- Found target X86
-- Building for target i686-linux-gnu
-- Using standard ApplicationDataDir. You can change it with
Qt4 Found OK

CMake Error at

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
thr at thr-x1:~/src/scribus-svn/Scribus/build$

Running Kubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise).

Thanks in advance
