Currently I am trying to program in Python(2.7 for now) and have yet to be able to find a decent IDE. All I want the IDE to be able to do is compile/run the script and if at all possible be bug free. Also if it is free that would be nice =). Any suggestions, I have tried a few but none have worked, NINJA IDE and Eric IDE to be specific.

Nothing is bug free, but having used Eric for a project a few years ago I can sympathize with the desire for something more stable. The mascot pretty much summed up the user experience for me.

If all you want is the ability to run the script, you can probably use just about any text editor. Try "idle" for starters. I personally use Emacs as my python IDE. Vim, Geany, Gedit, Kate, and a laundry list of others fit those simple requirements.

I am using PyDev now but what exactly is your project? NINJA IDE never let me give input when I needed it to.

Try vim or gvim. Nothing else really comes close.

And there is a new one at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gecrit/

It has a terminal plugin which lets you have as many shells you want.

Vim does bracket matching, so that is useful, I pretty much use whatever I'm in the mood for. Sometimes nano, sometimes vim, sometimes others.

I like geany. But you have to configure it for python. Set tabs to 4 spaces, set save convert tabs to spaces & under projects also set 4 spaces for tabs. I find it easy to copy some sample code, save with .py and run it to see if it works.

Editors:
Too many choices but many are free so you can try them
