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!
