Hello!

I can recommend Eclipse. In its latest Version (3.x) and the CDT Plugin, it is an excellent IDE. One feature i was missing in MOST other IDEs is the integrated version control (CVS / Subversion ). CDT provides a great debugger (needs gdb). I use Eclipse with gcc (Linux) and MinGW (Windows).

KDevelop has that.

IDLE is another IDE( python.org )
and a heads up, xemacs is not the same as emacs for X windows.. They're 2 seperate editors..

The nice thing about kdevelop3 is that if you don't like the default ide clutter, you can pare it down so it's even simpler and less cluttered than microsoft visual studio.

the svn plugin and scons support are really nice too.

gedit is a great editor that syntax highlights most languages (I use it for C/C++, javascript, xhtml, java, php, css, python, but it supports many more. like C#)

It's not an IDE, though. (/me still prefers makefiles) And it doesn't do anything more than highlight syntax. (I would prefer eclipse to gedit for java... if eclipse weren't such a juggernaut)

* Hundreds of keyboard shortcuts to remember - steep learning curve


You are aware of that every keyboard shortcut also has a text-command? I.e. you can type M-x (to bring up the mini-buffer) then use a string literal name such as "query-replace", "compile", "search-regex", "switch-to-buffer" etc. to do stuff.

sorry for polluting the thread, just wanted to point this out.

When I first started on Linux I was using VI and was told it was used by many for quite some time. I was told it might be old but VI is still powerful. So I'd rather use VI compared to any other text editors. As old as it is, it has syntax highlighting; I thoug hthat was pretty cool for an oldie!

Any ways, I think I'll look into KDevelop because I'm more interested in Qt & KDE. I'm planning on buying a Qt3 programming book from Hastings, so hopefully that will aid me in developing KDE nice applications.

[Off Topic]
Because I'm still new to Linux I don't know where every thing is or what I can screw around with. I want to make several mods and install mods for KDE I've downloaded. Where is the source, I believe (YaST)SuSE installed it.

The kde*-devel packages don't contain sources, only headers so you can develop your own KDE applications, if that's what you're talking about.

If you're counting non-C++ IDE's, there are quite a few:
* IDLE, as already mentioned
* DrPython
* Boa Constructor
* PyPE
* SPE
* PythonDevelop

EDIT:
And not to be picky or anything, but I believe Scintilla is just a GTK(2) rich text control widget. I believe the actual editor is named Scite.
