    How can you draw graphics with C++ in Linux? I mean like lines and trapezoids. Also, what is a good way to start programming with Linux? I am used to VS 6 and .NET, and I know you can compile from the command line. I was just wondering if there is a good IDE out there that I could use.

    Look into ncurses, here is a good tutorial:
    You can handle console graphics this way.
    Help populate a c/c++ help irc channel
    server: irc://
    channel: #c

    c isn't really one of those languages. You can't just start drawing graphics it isn't part of the basics. Text manipulation and data types are in C. Graphics are system dependent. I use opengl. So I suggest you learn the c syntax well and get comfortable with some easier api's first.

    What WM are you using?
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
