    What is a good GUI code editor/complier?

    Hey

    Im looking for something like Visual Studio 6.0 for Linux (because I havent found a good guide to install VS 6.0 with Wine). With a GUI frontend. More specific, for C programming language.

    I would highly recommend eclipse, it is the best open source IDE I have used. other option is the bluefish editor, however I have only used bluefish for html so im not sure if it has c support.

    Can I write/comply C code in Eclipse?
    And Bluefish (As far as I see) allows you to type code, check syntaxis, but it doesnt let you comply and run the complied program.

    I would recommend taking a look at NETBEANS as well, it is mainly a JAVA IDE but supports C++ as well. It is very easy to use and you will find alot of documentation for it. It is said that is easier than eclipse but also lack feature that eclipse has.

    Yes you can use Eclipse for C. Other options are Code::Blocks, Anjuta and NetBeans. This is covered in the Programming Tools and References for Many Languages sticky in this forum, so you shouldn't have to start a new post.

    If you wanna get serious with GUI programming IMHO your best option is Qt (a C++ library). They have created a new IDE fully integrated and a real eye candy! It's also cross platform so your code will work on *nix, windows, mac ...etc
    You can download it from here

    Tutorials for Qt4 is here

    http://doc.trolltech.com/4.4/tutorials.html

    You'll need Qt4 development headers, they are already on Ubuntu repos.

    Good luck

    Why would I need tutorials for qt4? I want something that is like Visual Studio and is easy to use.

    riahc3, I'd honestly not suggest any IDEs. I learned programming using an IDE (actually, Visual Studio), but as it turns out, using the command line is simply simpler. Try installing g++:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install g++
    Edit your program in Ubuntu's text editor, GEdit, which has built in syntax highlighting, auto-tabbing, file tabs, and a nice find and replace. Then compile your app with g++ like this:
    Code:
    g++ -o HelloWorld main.cpp
    This command will turn main.cpp into an executable named HelloWorld.

    If you want to link to a library and compile another file too:
    Code:
    g++ -o HelloWorld main.cpp Class.cpp -lSDL
    Where -lSDL links to the libSDL library.

    If .h files are included in those files, they will be dealt with properly -- no need to add them to the command.

    Also, using the command line is also great because it makes the project easier to work with on different OSs. Pretty much all OSs have g++, so you'll be set to compile on other systems with a setup like the above.

    Then use Visual Studio For IDE's, editors, and GUI toolkits (including GUI designers), see: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4716120

    There is no $800 IDE for non free, restricted environments for Linux that is in common use or that I know of.
