To explain the problem (try two):
I can't install the lua compiler (lua do org) with the newest version of
Ubuntu, quote out of the manual of lua to install lua:
FWIW, Lua 5.2.3 (the latest version) comes packaged for Ubuntu 14.04
LTS already. Just do

$ sudo apt-get install lua5.2

and for the development headers:

$ sudo apt-get install liblua5.2-dev

As others have pointed out, your problem with compiling is a missing
dependency. But unless you want to install a modified version (something yousay you "refuse" to do), there's no reason not to install the package.

As first, thanks, this did now install without any error, what I still don't understand 'is even stranger':
I still did not decide which tool I will use, that's why I installed:
- ZeroBrane Studio <-> It does not throw a error-msg while I try to debbug/run a demo scripts, as it also does not open the window for the script, it just shows, quote;
"Debugging session started in '/opt/zbstudio/myprograms/'.
Debugging session completed (traced 0 instructions).
Program completed in 1.06 seconds (pid: 2815)."
- CodeLite <-> In Settings, Build Settings, Advanced, Compilers are the GCC compiler versions listened, but still not Lua...
- Lua Development Tools <-> This software package does not run after a successful installation with Ubuntu 14.04, I should mention this to these developers, but I need to retest the installer, probably I will do this tomorrow, 'I go to bed soon - GMT+1'.
- PolyCode <-> It's running, but I think the compiler is integrated, and I do not like that no syntax highlighting is integrated. (Unless this 'small failure' (a new version should come after the website) seems this Game Developer Software Kit to be incredible!)
