    can you recommend a Nice Linux IDE?

    Hi all.
    I recently moved to Linux (Fedora Core 5) and i am newbie to it.
    I am really used to Microsoft's Visual Studios and such, and i am searching for an IDE under Fedora Linux...
    What i tried was Eclipse but i found it to bee too big.
    I tried also KDevelop on a previous FC4 installation
    Can you guys recomend an IDE for Linux?

    oh by the way:
    (having troubles with gcc, make files and "make install" scripts ... ufff should chek your site better )

    Are you looking for a code generator under linux? [ the ms visual developer tools ]
    QT Designer is the closest that I know of.

    an integrated development environment is not a code generator, it is a tool set to allow you to write code yourself. for that, glade, kdevelop, kdestudio [ commercial version of kdevelop ]
    runtime revolution [ commercial ]
    wxwidgets has an ide if you install from their sources, if you use the distro version it is most often integrated into kdevelop.

    There's a FC 5?
    How didn't I know about this? It'll give me something to do this weekend.

    The only IDE I use on Linux is the one for the Eclipse platform type thing, can't remember it's name exactly.

    re: ahluka:
    >...There's a FC 5?...
    Yep, released on 20-03-2006.
    They really did alot of work on it. It runs the new 2.6.15 kernel and the 'X' +gnome is much better. (it shuts down properly this time ). But backup everything from your FC4, because the upgrading Anaconda .py script failed (with several exceptions) on my system and left a crashed semi FC5 Installation
    >...Eclipse...
    Ouch... i am still learning how to use this big big thing ... Otherwise its not bad...

    P.S: on what machine are you running Fedora ?
    mine is P4 3.0GHz x64, Assus GDCPro, 512MB Ram, 160 GB Maxtor
    ...and this Eclipse thingy is wasting it like waffels
    (erhmm... how to translate it in English? )

    You could try code::blocks, it will probably have a windows feel to it since it is cross platform. I have used it on windows and it's decent.

    You can always get the source code and compile it for your machine, the packages thing is just a way to simplify the compilation and/or the installation.

    I must say it might be worth the time spent on it, i am actually using it for my coding and i really enjoy it, i tried some others before like kdevelop and eclipse but in the end i decided to stick with codeblocks as i really enjoyed it.

    Cheers.

    You won't find an IDE for Linux that is as good as Visual Studio. People don't like to admit that but it's true. I run Linux as my primary OS but I often spend time in VMware running Windows and Visual Studio.

    I don't know what exactly it is but Visual Studio just feels better than anything else (and I don't even like Microsoft).

    Eclipse is probably the closest in terms of functionality (get the C/C++ plugin CDT if that's what you're programming in) but like you mentioned, it's incredibly bloated. Too bad it's written in Java. In the end it's not as good as VS.

    Most often I end up just using vi in Linux.

    If it's GUI application development then: Gtk+ Glade. QT designer. wxWidgets has many tools (I like the commercial wxDesigner). I also really like FLTK's Fluid tool. None of those are really IDE's though, just GUI layout tools.

    On Linux, I just use Kate as a project manager. The built in terminal is nice for compiling and testing the apps as I code.

    I'd highly recommend Anjuta

    Hello,

    I've grown to like the MinGW Developer Studio suite. It resembles VC 6 in alot of ways. This package is a Cross-Platform C/C++ IDE for GNU GCC Compiler systems.


    I also like Anjuta and KDevelop. Though MinGW has been my overall favorite so far. I might change my mind if I get around to installing Anjuta 2.

This is often caused by improper usage of pointers, attempts to access a non-existent or read-only physical memory address, re-use of memory if freed within the same scope, de-referencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a non-pointer variable as a pointer.
