"Bloodshed Dev-C++ is a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the C/C++ programming language. It uses Mingw port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) as it's compiler. Dev-C++ can also be used in combination with Cygwin or any other GCC based compiler."

So just use gcc:

sudo apt-get install build-essential gdb

will install all the stuff you need.

See sticky FAQ about how to pick first language to learn - by opinion of many Python is easier to learn than C. Either way, see other discussions in forum about websites with training problems to solve. Good luck!

I made my first real program using C++/Qt and using the kdevelop IDE. Found it very easy to use, especially for debugging. Maybe you could give it a shot...

Also for getting and using the compiler, which is in the sticky.

The best Development Environment that I have found for GNOME/XFCE4 is Anjuta. it can be obtained by typing the following in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install anjuta
There are several plugins you should turn on to get the full functinality:
*DevHelp (useful if you have devhelp and API docs installed)
There are more if you ever need them.
