One does not usually have an IDE for a library, one usually only has an IDE for a language. So, what language are you using?

If you're using C++ and with OpenGL in mind... I'd highly recommend Code::Blocks. It works very well as an IDE, and it just so happens to come loaded with lots of OpenGL/GLFW/Ogre project wizards to get you started.

Click -> Code::Blocks

Thanks Schemdly. This exactly what I'm looking for. And yes, I plan to do my work using C++.
Can you help me find a direct link to the CodeBlock binary? I can't seem to find a version that meet my specification: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS - the Dapper Drake.

Thanks again =)

The nightly builds have distro specific packages. Matter of fact I use it on Ubuntu 6.06 also.

This might be a silly question, but how do I run the program? It's already installed and I don't see it under Applications > Programming

I made a default SDL project with Code::Blocks yesterday to see if it's any good. It looks nice. The only down side is that the editor is slow. The CPU usage goes up to 100% when I move the caret and it jumps 2 lines due to this.
Kdevelop doesn't have this problem but I have to admit I have limited experience with this one to since I wasn't able to do what I wanted.
I have used gcc to compile stuff myself for now.

search for the file + type ./codeblocks(whatever) in its directory, if its what u wanna use often setup a link on your desktop or application->programming menu
