    Hi,

    I just use gedit to do c++, because it is quite clean and fast to use and has syntax hilighting. I have tried Bluefish for a while, and that was cool with things like closing brackets in code, etc. but has a bit too much stuff all around you which doesn't do anything for you if you're using c++.
    Otherwise you could try some IDEs for opening projects. You can find some in the software centre.
    I have recently started learning programming myself.

    If you want to learn a language like c++, there are sites like cplusplus.com or cprogramming.com with tutorials. A lot of configuration is done in scripting, so it'd be best to search for what you want to change to see if anyone has done it on these or other Linux forums. You didn't make it clear how much you know about programming...

    Any other suggestions would be welcome

    Jodie.

    Geany or Kate would be good for starters. Both are simple to use but have a lot of features useful for writing programs.

    Geany,bluefish are lightweight and very good source code editors.You can always start with those and then move onto Netbeans/Eclipse(java).
