    kdevelop

    So I'm clearly Noob when it comes to Linux, been using it for 3 days now but I want to make a successful transition from Windows. I am a CS Major in college looking for a good IDE for linux, and I heard about KDevelop.

    i downloaded the KDevelop-3.5.1.tar.bz2. I don't understand how you guys do this, I can't figure out how to install the program onto my machine.

    So... How do i take this .tar.bz2 file and install the program that lies within it?

    Thank you.

    What you need to do is called "compiling from source". Instructions can be found here: http://monkeyblog.org/ubuntu/installing/#source

    you don't neet to compile kdevelop from source just
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kdevelop
    should install it.

    To add using widgets instead of forms takes some getting used to
    linux != windoze

    Ahh yes, good idea. I just read that he'd downloaded the tar already so... yeah. My bad there.

    Re: kdevelop

    Okay so I got that figured out, now I am having a problem with the ./configure

    i type ./configure and a whole lot of jargon scrolls the screen, and comes to:

    "checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X libraries. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!"

    does this mean the package i downloaded is incomplete?

    Yeah, just forget what I told you. It's way too complicated for what you're trying to do. Just go to Accessories > Terminal and type this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kdevelop
    That will install it.

    If a program is in your enabled repositiories then you should always install with apt-get. (Wikipedia on repositiories) Depending on which repos you have enabled, that will determine which programs you'll be able to install with apt-get.

    If one of your repos doesn't have a specific program, then your next method should be to go to the programs website and find a .deb file (the Linux version of an .exe file) and install it using that.

    If all else fails, compiling from source is your last option.
