But, I have noticed that Geany is very similar in the way it operates. The "intelasense" may not be as good, but still does it. The program runs much better, as it is compiled for linux.

i use Geany to edit source files, but i build with make and debug with gdb.

if you want something better than dev++ Code::Blocks is really nice, lots of features..
check it out.

Thanks for that. I'm going to go try that out. I've been having a lot of trouble debugging with just the terminal lol.

Here's another vote for Code::Blocks. Very nice IDE and they just released the new version after something like 2 years without an "official" release.

I've also read Geany and Anjuta being recommended.

Yes, it works in Wine, but be aware that you are making Windows programs with a Windows port of Linux libraries :-)

+1 for Geany.

Anjuta may also be worth a mention.

Just a thought, but considered text editor (I use SciTE) and a compiler? Does the same job, and a compiler. To be honest, unless you're working on a large project IDE's aren't necessary.

Doesn't that break some sort of space-time continuum? :)

I'm suprised no one mentioned Kdevelop. Code Blocks is nice, though.

There are countless threads on IDE's and countless IDE's. The sticky has the grand thread on it, and http://ubuntuprogramming.wikidot.com/Tools has some information.

There is no need for a re-enumeration of all the options everytime someone comes over from Windows.

My reason for not mentioning it was the need to install the KDE libraries. I didn't really see the need when Codeblocks is available.
