Which IDE for c++ do you use in Linux? What program would you recommend? Eclipse, KDevelop, Borland BuilderX or vi :) ???

Is there any IDE with integrated help (for c++ and libs, not wxWindows of course)?

I find KDevelop to be the easiest to use. It has a nice editor and build manager. It's my "one stop shop" on Linux. :)

I'd suggest Anjuta.

I'm not sure terminal counts as an IDE. ;)

Currently using Kdevelop but have never used anything else. I'm going to check out that Anjuta thing upCASE suggested though.

Personally I prefer vim and make, but Code::Blocks looks interesting, too. ( )

I like to use vim and make to develop in C/C++ and Eclipse to Java.

I will start using Code Blocks ( this weekend. So, on Monday I can say what I thing about it.

Best Regards.

Just a side-note:
Code::Blocks contains now the GNU build system for easier building :)

Standard procedure:

Code: Select all

cd codeblocks
./bootstrap (<-- note: needed only the first time)
mkdir -p build/debug
cd build/debug
../../configure --enable-debug
sudo make install
This was recently added in CVS so it's not yet complete.
'make', 'make install' and 'make uninstall' work fine.
Don't try yet 'make clean' or 'make distclean': it will delete files from your working copy :shock: ! This will be fixed of course ;)
If you encounter any problems, just drop by the Code::Blocks forums.

I've been using Anjuta ( for a couple of years now and have been very pleased with it. It is a Gnome/gtk+ IDE with wxWindows/wxWidgets support. If you do get it, get the latest 1.2.4 version. They're currently working on a 2.0.2 version but it is nowhere near ready yet.

How did you use Anjuta with the wxGTK-2.6 series? I tried 1.4.2, but without success...

Thank you.

P.S.: Also, I couldn't find how to build a library (.so or .a) with Anjuta for wx....

I don't use any IDE in Linux. My "IDE" is XEmacs, a shell, make and sometimes grep. It's quite simple, keeps the project structure clear, the Makefiles are still human-readable and I always know what I'm doing. :D

Microsoft Windows is unfortunately somehow uncomfortable in this way and there I use Code::blocks in combination with mingw.
