Question C++ development IDE like VS? / Anjuta without gnome?


Greetings!


I want to use linux to develop applications in C++, among them SDL/opengl ones. As I'm used to the IDE that Visual Studio provides, I have so many things to learn from scratch like fiddling with ./configure scripts, Makefiles, debugging and so on. However as this keeps me from actually getting any work done, I thought it would be best if I had an IDE that is somewhat similar to VS and I came upon Anjuta.

Now this looks very nice but it seems that it depends on gnome. As I'm using Windowmaker and would prefer not to switch only because of this one application, I wonder:

Can it be compiled and used without actually running gnome? Can I just install all the libraries and it will compile and run just fine?

Same issue goes for KDevelop, it looks nice but can it be used without actually using KDE?


Or are there any other free/GPL applications that are similar to VS that you use with success?


Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Good bye!

You don't need to be running GNOME itself to use GNOME apps (nor KDE to run KDE apps). You just have to have the various GNOME/GTK/QT/KDE libraries installed.

I've used both KDevelop and (the now defunct) GIDE under WindowMaker.

Many thanks for the swift reply, speter!


As you seem to be experienced with KDevelop, may I ask if it is specialized on building KDE applications or can one just build anything with it? I ask this (maybe silly) question because I couldn't clearly get this out of the documentation on its website.

As I want to write preferably platform independent applications, a KDE specific development suite wouldn't be of much use to me.


Cheers!

I wouldn't suggest writing GNOME apps with it, but it isn't strictly limited to KDE apps. Just don't link against QT.

Have a look at Magic C++, A handy visual remote Unix and Linux C/C++ IDE under windows just like VC++, but it's not free :-(
There's also a free trial download. It looks just like Visual C++ and supprots for editing, compiling, debugging etc.

Magic C++ download site:
