IDE for Linux

Do you have a question about makefiles, a compiler or IDE you are using and need to know how to set it up for wxWidgets or why it doesn't compile but other IDE's do ? Post your questions here.

IDE for Linux

Post by forlognao2 » Thu Aug 18, 2005 11:54 pm

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.
OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

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. ( http://www.codeblocks.org/ )

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

I will start using Code Blocks (http://www.codeblocks.org/) 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
make
sudo make install
NOTE:
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.

Yiannis.

I've been using Anjuta (http://www.anjuta.org) 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.

Hi,
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.

Regards
Michael.
