Is there a c++ programming application for ubuntu? or is it possible to get visual c++ express edition to work through wine?

gcc should do it.

I'd like to second this request. I've been having a hell of a time trying to get kdevelop to work :(

I use code::blocks. it is the closest to visual C++ that I have found.

There is a binary release for ubuntu:

First, make sure you have build-essential installed if you plan to do anything with C/C++. Anjuta and Geany are two "IDE" applications that work like they advertise. If you don't need anything fancy, use vi(m)/emacs. Otherwise I think Eclipse has extensions to C/C++. As for running anything from Visual Studio in Wine, good luck. Anything from Visual Studio requires a massive amount of Windows libraries, and I believe part is coded in .NET, making it nearly impossible to run any part of VS in Wine. If you find somebody who knows how, or you find a way yourself on that, let me know, and write a tutorial. Good luck!

Try eclipse if you want a IDE for C++. Its looks similar to studio, I used it this summer for a class without to much effort needed to get it running. I haven't tried code::blocks so I'm not sure which is better suited for you, best try both out.

Where can I download eclipse? I found the code::blocks one at getdebs.net, but i can't find eclipse.

Hah. I went 3 days trying to figure out kdevelop and why it didnt want to run a simple console script. It took 20 minutes to get Code:Blocks and my easy test code ran on the first try.

Do any of these listed (Eclipse, Code:Block, KDevelop support VCL components used in Borland C++ Builder?
