Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Okay, I know this thread has been written about to hell and back in the forums but I've added a twist.
I'm looking for a small and simple IDE for C++ coding in linux. Now what I mean by small and simple is that it doesn't add excess files to your project directory.
I tried Anjuta and when I created my first test project, the folder contained 1.4Mb of stuff...and I hadn't even typed my first line of code yet! I had a similar experience with KDevelop 3.0.
Now, I can understand a few configuration files need to be created by the IDE but the fewer the better. Bloodshed-Dev C++ is the type of IDE I'm looking for, but isn't out for Linux (or at least I can't get the publicly available beta version to work for me).
I'd be happy to stick with KDevelop. I like the interface and I've been told that it's easy to configure. However the online documentation is spotty so I haven't been able to 'clean it up' so to speak.
Does anyone have suggestions for a 'clean-running' C++ IDE? Or maybe tips on streamlining KDevelop?
You could always use Kate, ( which provides the editor for KDevelop ) separately, and write your own makefiles. Most of the extra stuff in the projects are configuring scripts, automake and autoconf for makefile.am and such. Once your project is ready for deployment you can create a distribution ( in the tools menu ) and you'll see a dramatic reduction in the number of files. so people can just ./configure, make, and make install, your program. Most IDE's do this to make it simple for the programmer.
I don't think so. if you start using emacs, you won't be looking for another IDE at all, as you don't need any other. I've heard of some people joke that emacs unloads *nix from the memory before loading it, but I don't get the joke there. As you can do almost anything from emacs, if you become versed in its use, you will rarely go out of it.
Ya, that's the point, but you should not try to FUD new users about what they can love if they learn. At least, I think so. I started to use emacs after it was mentioned favorably in the forums, so I think the same may happen to others!
Also, IMHO emacs is the only complete programmer's IDE.
