Cant seem to install any IDE

Ok, so Im trying to install a C IDE... any C IDE. I tried to install anjuta 1.2.1, but upon installation it said I was missing several dependencies. So, I looked around on the site, and it said that there are some files you need to install that not every distro has, blah blah blah, so I downloaded that and installed those files. Still, same message. So I decided to try a new IDE. I next tried to Bloodshed dev++ IDE, and when I tried to run the install script, it gave me a bunch of errors and thats it. Finally, I tried to install KDEvelop, and that didnt work either. I followed the installation instructions, but the install/configure files didnt even come with the download.

Anyway, I am very new to linux, and I want to get a C IDE so I can begin developing on linux, but things are not working in my favor. Maybe someone here can suggest another IDE that is easier to install for the linux-impaired, or maybe even offer suggestions for the others. If need be, I can get the exact messages that I got when the installations failed, but that will involve me having to download the entire file and re-run the installation again which would take a little bit, so maybe someone can offer some assistance without me having to do that. But if it is necessary, I can do it.

most distributions have their own way of installing software that will take care of the dependencies. You should use your distro's method to install the software you need.

I use emacs for programming/email/text etc .... Emacs should be included in your distribution, so no need d/l the source and go through the installation. Might want to give it a try.
