What exactly is the problem with gedit? It has syntax highlighting etc.
Geany (apt:geany) may be a good alternative; it has syntax highlighting, code folding etc. as well as an intergrated terminal and a 'run' button.

yes, but it doesnt have "ctr + space" and check error on typing features like netbeans. I just want to find a better IDE. If not, gedit still works well :) , but a little more difficult than what i used :)

These sorts of features aren't really available for bash scripts. This is because it was meant for simple things that don't need an IDE. You may be better off learning languages such as ruby or perl. perl is similar to bash but has much more advanced features. Geany has error checking and variable auto-completion for these languages.

Gedit in fact is way more powerful than one might think. Just perform an in-depth search about gedit and it's plugins. ;)

If you want plugins for gedit, search on Google Code.
