What now?
Have you got anything from Application>Programming menu ?

Yes, I have code blocks.
Does that mean I'm done ?
How to install the latest version (i'm sure it's possible to update the software without deleting it, no?) ?
What about all the installations I made in the beginning, shouldn't I remove them ?

man, you can worry about that once it's installed.

If you've already followed cola's steps, follow my steps to UPDATE it.

Using what cola told me, I have the version 8.02 (build: Feb 27 2008 21:58:34 - wx2.8.7).
Is that the lattest version ?

If I write sudo apt-get install codeblocks, won't I get 2 versions in my computer ?

Should I remove the things that I have installed in my first message ?

the version I see on the codeblock site is 8.02-0ubuntu1, the version I see in the repos through synaptic right this second is 8.02-0ubuntu4 (which probably means some ubuntu-specific security update or something minor). No, you won't have two versions installed, apt-get/synaptic will see the same package name with a different version.

Do you have Synaptic yet? Get it. You need it. For downloading EVERYTHING. It's almost completely point and click.

It's a minor number change, meaning minor bug fixes. It could only be more stable.

Use Synaptic for finding all your packages in the future.
