Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I voted for KDevelop but I really really wish I could have it emulate VI. Actually what I really really really wish, is that I wasn't so cheap and I'd break down and buy SlickEdit for linux because that's what I use at work on WinBlows and SlickEdit ROCKS. Oh well.
although not exactly the ide itself for i only use the compiler and those kylix stuffs that came with it almost all of the time and lately it seems that i tend to only use a text editor more oftently ...
I know it is pretty lightweight, but considering it has pretty good integration with many tools, and considering that it can be extended and that there are many [many] plugins to choose from ... why is VIM missing and Emacs is not ?
Personally I find VIM the best IDE available, with Emacs being a close second.
All the others are just toys.
I don't know if this will be any help for you but........
If you used Qt and qmake for your program.
Add "CONFIG += opengl qt warn_on debug" to the ".pro" file and debug your program with "ddd", which uses "vim" as an editor. ("ddd" is a frontend to "gdb"). You are in VIM all the way. (I think).
I generally use Kdevelop as I prefer kwrite to vim, but they both do about the same thing.

I find Eclipse far too heavy: it does not seem to be an IDE, it looks more like a resource eater! But maybe it is not its fault, the guilty one could be Java...
IIRC the reason is because the JVM grabs a boatload of memory for use in its internal memory management at startup. This can be affected (and reduced) by passing the right parameter to the JVM. (See the options that start with -X.)
An integrated development environment (IDE), also known as integrated design environment and integrated debugging environment, is a type of computer software that assists computer programmers in developing software.
IDEs normally consist of a source code editor, a compiler and/or interpreter, build-automation tools, and (usually) a debugger. Sometimes a version control system and various tools to simplify the construction of a GUI are integrated as well. Many modern IDEs also integrate a class browser, an object inspector and a class hierarchy diagram, for use with object oriented software development. Although some multiple-language IDEs are in use, such as the Eclipse IDE, NetBeans or Microsoft Visual Studio, typically an IDE is devoted to a specific programming language, as in the Visual Basic IDE.
