There should be some other message from distcc preceding that one, which
will help explain _why_ it failed to distribute that job.

Also, try setting DISTCC_VERBOSE=1 in your environment, e.g.

   export DISTCC_VERBOSE=1

That may give you more information.

If that's still not enough, try looking at the syslog messages from distcc
on the desktop machine ("sudo less /var/log/messages" and/or "sudo less

That's not a good idea, because distcc will default to "gcc", not "g++", if
you don't give it a compiler.
CXX="distcc g++" is better.
