Brand New to Linux, intermediate Programmer, want to program for linux destop apps
Hello everyone Just last week (12/4/03) i've purchased SuSE 9.0 Pro. And i wish to program for linux. but i can't work my way into programming anything where as how can i get diddally to work (compilers, executable programs) Is there any media out there that can tell me what i would have to do to program in C++, Java 2 and Perl.

I wish to make Linux onto a more Desktop OS so i wish to help but don't have any clue to make it work. i would love any information that i can recieve from anyone.

The easiest for C++ would be to use Qt tools.
Check if you've got installed QT develop packages.
(K Menu - Applications - Development - QT Designer)

QT Designer is kind of a MS V. Studio.
If it is not installed in your system, sure the is an rpm file in your distro's CD's.
(For MDK9.1: libqt3-devel-3.1.1-13.1mdk )

You can also choose KDevelop as GUI

On the other way, you could choose to develop for Gnome and/or GTK2 or even C# & "Mono" architecture, but I think that's at least harder for beginnings and could be less productive for a newbie.

Try to google for
linux gcc

gcc is the defacto c/c++ compiler.
Yeah.. qt is cute.. but nothing more then just a widget system. I like GTK more.. even though I never use Gnome.
Try searching for linux java and so on, you'll find info on it easily.

What makes you intermediate programmer?

How do u measure that?

*just curious*


in your console:

1) type: emacs hello.c &
2) hit enter
3) copy code below into that window that opened:

#include <stdio.h>

printf("Hello World!\n");

3) in emacs window; press ctrl button; and then while holding ctrl press 'x' and then (still holding ctrl) 's' - emacs should now save your code into file called hello.c

4) in your console window write:

gcc -o hello hello.c

5) hit enter

6) still in console write:


7) hit enter

at this point you should see some output like :

Hello World!

on your console.

After you have written this essential diddaly to work you will probably list out how to write next generation desktop diddalys on your own.

good luck!

I wish that helped.

Thank you everyone for your input i am installing Qt to see how it functions with my personal needs,i've ran a search for Linux Java - found some interesting information. I also ran your Hello world and it work just as expected thank you everyone for your input
