I got the following error message:

sh: make: not found

I guess I need to install make, or a compiler on my Ubuntu 9.04

Could you tell me what I exactly need to type to install it?

try sudo apt-get install build-essential

build-essential is a package which contains stuff needed for building software. (make, gcc ..)
