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 have been at this thing for hours, and i'm about ready to piss on it. I am absolutely sure i have installed all the developement tools for java and c++ python and all these other developement tools, but how the hell am i supposed to run these, specificly the c++ compliler program. I have searched through the files and have only come up with g++ and inside that there are no application launchers. I would like to get it so that i can access averything through the k menu, but how do i do that if i don't know where the executables are. If someone can help me that would be great, but i am about readyto chuck suse 8 and go back to win2k.
Most compilers under any Linux distro are console-based (text) tools. Therefore, it would be pointless to have them in the K menu.
The JAVA compiler is ran with the command "javac" (if you installed the Sun SDK), while the virtual machine is ran using the "java" command. To run the C compiler, use the command "gcc".
If you are migrating from Windoze, then probably what you need is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) which has a built-in debugger, compiler, editor, e.t.c. There are a few available for Linux. One popular one is CodeForge, but it's not free, however. I am sure you'd be able to find lots of free ones at www.sourceforge.net , though.
pretty easy, you can do c, c++, gnome, and kde apps all with one IDE, plus if you use the QT3 toolkit, you can write the code once, then recompile it for linux, windows, and/or mac. (you'll have to buy a licence from trolltech if you want to sell the software to windows or mac users) it takes care of all the gory details for you (if you want) so you can concentrate on the code.
i tried to download kdevelop but there were a ton of dependincies i had to get with it beofre i could use it, is there a package that will install it all for me, or a least a place where i can get it all, instead of it linking me to other websites. i also downloaded anjuta and extracted it, but all i have now is a bunch of files, how do i launch the program. I am a nub at linux (just got it yesterday) and this kde setup is confusing
