[Geany] I can run programs

But that's my problem!
I select Compile and it compiles.  I select Build and it builds.  But I 
select Execute and it doesn't execute anything.  It shows me a 
terminal telling me "Error xx, Press Enter to continue".  Press Enter 
and the terminal disappears.  That's all.  It never creates an 
executable and it never runs the program.  Even if the code is perfect.


I try with almost every distro on Earth.  Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Fedora and 
Debian.  Is always the same.
