I can't get Hydrogen to compile properly. When I follow the installation instructions and type "./configure" in the Terminal, I am told that there is no C Compiler. What should I do? I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu, if that helps.

I suggest you install a version of hydrogen delivered with ubuntu. You should search your package manager for hydrogen. If you would really like to compile hydrogen yourself you should install gcc, libsndfile, libtar, qt4, libjack, alsa,rdf, flac ... All these packages are needed to compile hydrogen yourself.

Unfortunately, the computer that I am trying to install Hydrogen on is not connected to the Internet, so I can't use the package manager. Can you provide any links to those programs you've listed there, and some instructions on how to install them? Thanks.

You should take a look at this http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/sound/hydrogen there you can find the packages for ubuntu. You should place them in a directory where your package manager can find them and then try to install them. I don't know which directory it is since I don't use Ubuntu or Debian. Could be that it's not possible to install them with your package manager and that you have to install them directly, but I don't know how that can be done. Hope this helps.

All the packages are there - thanks. But, at the bottom of each one's page, there are links to "amd64", "i386" and "powerpc". Which do I need to use? For now, I've downloaded all of them, but I need to know which ones I actually need.

i386 is for a normal athlon xp, pentium, .... amd64 is for a athlon 64bit processor, and ppc is for a power pc processor (an old mac), I suppose you will need i386
