Programming in C/C++/Java/PHP in Ubuntu 6.10

I've stepped off the deep end and installed Ubuntu 6.10. Now I can't figure out how to do what I want to do.

I'd like to code in multiple languages, but I haven't got the slighted idea how to accomplish this on Ubuntu.

I'm looking for either recommendations or links to good sources (with some explanation on installations).

I'd like to program in C, C++, Java and PHP. I'd prefer a simple IDE, but I can live with text editors if needed. I know I already have vi, but I'll need compilers. I thought it was included, but it seems I was wrong. I assume I'll also need something like xampp (for PHP), but I don't know the equivalent.

I was using Visual Studio for C/C++ and Eclipse for Java/PHP. If there are IDEs available, I'd ask that there be some available support (manuals, howtos). I'm brand new to the OS, so I'll be doing a lot of trial and error.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Hi! Welcome to the great world of Linux!
In KDE (that I use), kate is a great highlighting editor (with terminal) and kdevelop is a great IDE (c/c++). I don't know any alternatives for Gnome (as I don't use it). If you'd like to install kde, it's easiest to install the full kubuntu-desktop. You may also look into Eclipse and Netbeans (for java). I suppose they come with built-in manuals.
To install the GNU C/C++ compilers you need to install the packages gcc and g++. You might also want the debugger, gdb, and valgrind - great for memory leak checking (and much more). The JDK from sun is in the package sun-jdk.
Good luck! From my experience, Linux excels in the area of programming.

An IDE for Gnome is Anjuta (you'll find it in the repositories).

For Java I recommend Eclipse or Netbeans. But, beware that Java and those IDEs doesn't work best in 64bit version of Edgy which I don't recommend.
