There are several to choose from. The most common ones are KDevelop, Anjuta and Eclipse.

There are a number:

Anjuta
KDevelop
Eclipse (with the CDT plugin)

If you are planning to use other languages particularly Java then Eclipse is probably your best option. If you use the KDE desktop then KDevelop is a great choice. Anjuta is a reasonable IDE (although personally I have some problems with it.) But please don't let my bias cloud your choice, an IDE can be a very personal thing.

You best bet is probably to look at all three and then make a decision. If you have any specific questions about how they work, you can always come back here.

By far the fastest/most flexible/most productive/all-around-best:
xterm
vi
make
man

(or substitute "emacs" for "vi" ;-))

The OP is asking about IDEs. Would you class those tools as IDEs?

One man's "best" is another's nightmare, what with vi and its idiosyncratic syntax, horrendous tool

After including gdb in that lineup, I'd say so; they fulfill the same functions (they just use a lot less memory / CPU time).

But they don't really form an integrated environment, I agree they are essential development tools.

...but each to his (or her) own.

Oh yes, they do form an integrated environment. I open every component in its own window on the same desktop in X

BTW, you forgot to mention gdb. I can't do without.

To me an IDE is a single tool that works independently or as an interface to others. I don't see how calling separate tools like vim an IDE because there is nothing integrated about them, although I agree that they can be used for the same purposes as an IDE.

since someone has successfully tried ide and such , i think we should give them a try too ...

but i think an ide should includes integration of music playing during runtime ... probably a big red hot quick music button ... amateurs/hobbyists will like it ...

ok ... serious ...

here something i found interesting ...

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/op...starthere.html
a kind of history for eclipse , not sure how true is that ...

http://linuxdevices.com/articles/AT8349506804.html
about this c/c++ cdt plugin for eclipse ...

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerwork...h_by=practice:
this one about java ... related but looks difficult for me i guess , i mean somehow i know them but they donno me ...



//but cheers ...

Code blocks looks quite good too http://www.codeblocks.org/. I have not used it my self as my projects are not big enough to warrent keeping track of classes etc so I just use a text editor and command line.

In the talk of C/C++ IDE's, I have failed to see anyone mention Qt...any particular reason why?

QT is not an IDE but a library with a few nice tools (eg qmake and designer). Version 3 had a built in code editor from the designer but that has been stripped from version 4, to allow more effort to be directed into integrating it with existing IDEs.

There's also Borland C++ Builder ($1,000 - $2,500) and Borland Turbo C++ Suite ($49, for personal use).
