I have some python packages which are based on fortran and require f77 and f90 compiling. Is it possible to install a gfortran compiler on my unix droplet?

This was dead simple: sudo apt-get install gfortran . Locally I installed this on my mac OS using an installer .dmg, getting the impression that the equivalent on unix was required. Recompiled and all works well!
