    OK. Apparently Linux Mint doesn't automatically install the standard C headers when you install GCC for some reason. It's difficult for me to tell exactly what packages you need since I'm not personally using Linux Mint, but try installing the package "libc6-dev"
    Code:
    $ sudo apt install libc6-dev
    or if that doesn't work try "build-essential".

    build-essential worked for me and allowed my to use C and C++ in Atom and CodeBlocks. Thanks! I also got Java to work in Atom and Eclipse. I had the JRE installed and all I needed was OpenJDK.

    I am still continuing to use Linux Mint and I am writing a novel and coding with it. I am also learning how to play games on Linux Mint.

    If you like technical stuff (like programming), you may want to look into learning LaTeX (https://www.latex-project.org/). It's a free software document preparation system that scientists use to typeset articles and occasionally books.
