looking for good IDE for linux, glimmer nto working out


I need a good IDE for linux like glimmer, but glimmer does not like newer systems, _gtk failed to load errors, I have solved it 6 times over 6 reformats, each time differently with the previous way nto working, this time I have tried everything and have given up, are there any other good IDE's? I program in java, c# and c++. it does not have to be one single ide, it can be seperate ones.

A quick search on sourceforge revealed this: http://www.jedit.org/, it works great, kinda slow being java, but for a text style editor speed is not a big issue.

If you're willing to pay money for it, SlickEdit is very nice (though I don't think it'll read ctags tag files -- it uses its own internal format).

Have you already tried and rejected the idea of using vim or emacs? I can't imagine trying to use *nix without one or the other but that's me

They're certainly free, both have large (and sometimes extremist) userbases, and they have hilighting for pretty much every language under the sun. Both interface with ctags and make. emacs even integrates with gdb, a text-only debugger. They're also scary fast once you learn the silly key combinations.

So they don't actually count as IDE's, but when you can do exactly the same stuff without ever exiting the program, what's the real difference?

I hate emacs, and I knaow basic vi keys, but I want something that does not use key combos, has customisable syntax highlighting, preferably folding, but it does nto need to, want it to be x based gui, does not have to be though, really syntax highlighting for java c++ and c# without any special keys is my basic need.

heh ok I made my attempt at converting you to the true path.

I do have to mention that vim has an X version which installs as gvim, and that it has customizable hilighting and folding emacs has an X version too but neither of us likes emacs

I've used netbeans and a couple of other IDEs I can't remember when school tried to make me, and hated them all, so you're on your own

I think kwrite has the stuff you want, although it's an editor not a full IDE. I know a couple people use KDevelop which I don't really know what it does but it is a full IDE.

For Java development, you can use Eclipse - www.eclipse.org
I think eclipse is an advanced IDE with a lot of plugins available. with different A drawback is that it consumes a lot of memory.
Can't tell much about it, just starting to use it...


KDevelop - www.kdevelop.org

a KDE application, best suited for C/C++-development, especially for KDE development.


Anjuta - http://anjuta.sourceforge.net - A Gtk/Gnome app.

Haven't used it since a long time, I used it mostly as an editor, not as IDE.
It loaded quickly and didn't need too much resources. Don't know much about it's IDE abilities. Seems to support primarily C/C++.

If you like it more low level, there are vim and emacs.

If you want just an editor with syntax highlighting and comfortable switching between files, perhaps kate (part of KDE) is your friend.

Maybe someone who used the IDEs more extensively than me can tell you more about their individual strengths and weaknesses.
