You are trying to launch DDD in wrong way. Debugger neds the binary file as argument ,not the source file.
You are giving the cpp file as the argument here which is not correct. You should first use g++ to compile your cpp file with ofcourse -g option(this generates the debug symbols) in binary. Then invoke DD with this binary file as argument.

small problem with ddd that I have installed right now from Ubuntu's (14.04 up to date) Software center.

The problem is the following : ddd is apparently able to find file up to a certain lenght of the path to the files. If the path is too long, no more files appear in the location, while files there are in the location.

The real problem is the I am not that free to arrange myself with the path. I have even tried a

ddd pathtofile/file.cpp

to open it, without success, throwing to following message :

GNU DDD 3.3.12 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu), by Dorothea L"/home/TOTO/TAF/DEVELOPMENT/br/trunk/analytics/adfin/Tests/Sources/cpp/tests/unitary/adfbasic/BasicCAdMutex.cpp": not in executable format: File format not recognized

pathtofile = /home/TOTO/TAF/DEVELOPMENT/br/trunk/analytics/adfin/Tests/Sources/cpp/tests/unitary
file = BasicCAdMutex.cpp

file being obviously at the right location.
