Lightbulb I need a good Lua IDE.

I am looking for a good lua IDE. Right now I am using Gedit. But I want something more advanced, Gedit isn't really enough. I want an IDE with a Gui-Designer, Syntax Highlighting, Error warnings and a Debugger. Any suggestions. Is there anyway how I could maybe combine a GUI Designer with Emacs (Or any other Text Editor).

I am using Centos 6.0

I was thinking of Eclipse... Ever use it?

@merkur958, I'm not sure what you mean by Gui Designer, but if you are looking for something lightweight, I've been working on ZeroBrane Studio Lua IDE, which includes syntax highlighting, remote debugger, interactive console, static code analysis, and many other things focused on Lua development. The most recent version also support Linux (in addition to Windows and OSX). I've posted several demos/tutorials on the project website.
