Eclipse 3.1 (with CDT 3.0) because its very convenient, offers the features I expect, allows me to move around platforms (Linux, OSX, Win) without having to learn a new IDE and is OpenSource.

Best regards...

For GTK stuff I'm usually working in C using Anjuta IDE. However, I do quite a bit in Gedit too-- I opt for simplicity more often than not.

vi (or, more precisely, vim)

I do almost all my programming over ssh on my desktop windows box to my corner-of-the-room linux server. freeXer for a windows X server on those rare occasions when I actually decide to test my code :)

Well, since I created it, I do most of my development in OpenLDev (www.openldev.org), but I have used Anjuta in the past as well as KDevelop and my personal favorite, Gedit w/ a console...

Kate, because it fits the way I work. It's all a matter of personal preference. You might try it, there's a copy with most Linux distros.

MacSlow, I have a question regarding Eclipse, I had downloaded this program from sunmicrosystems, but it ran really slow on my P3-128RAM WinXP, I don' t know if ran so slow because of the OS the amount of RAM or just because it is slow.
Can you advise?


What exactly is slow in the way Eclipse performs on your machine? The UI (redraws), compile-runs, debugging, indexer-runs? What versions of Eclipse and CDT are you running? Which JRE are you running them with?

What I've learned is that you can e.g. speed up the the indexer-runs by using the "CTags-based indexer" and not the full-blown "full indexer". You'll loose cross-referencing capabilites, but that's neglectable. The normal code-assist feature (Ctrl-<SPACE>) still works well. Of course it could always be faster :)

I never ran Eclipse on a machine with the specs like yours. But I would say that Eclipse will need a bit more beef (at least RAM-wise) to work more snappy. If you have the possibility, upgrade at least the amount of RAM in your system. Give it a good 512 MBytes... this will give it enough "room to breath".

For the record: I'm using Eclipse 3.1/CDT 3.0 on a Athlon-XP 2000+ (1.6 GHz) with 1 GByte of RAM under Fedora Core 4. Since Eclipse is written in Java you'll need the a JRE (Java Runtime Environment). I'm using Sun's JRE 1.5.0-04. For some reason I currently fail to remember, I didn't like the natively compiled version of Eclipse shipping with Fedora Core 4.

Best regards...

MacSlow

I had a P3 with 1GB of RAM and I found XP to be slow in itself. I found Win2000 to run a bit quicker, and found Linux to be the quickest (in terms of the "snappiness" of loading programes and general GUI responses). Any way, I would agree that you should beef up that RAM. Java apps tend to be a bit slower anyway, but it's usually not too significant if your system is a bit more powerful.

Yes, that will be the answer to this machine... more memory.

Thanks again.

What are your thoughts on the 2.x series of Anjuta? I'm using 1.2 but the screenshots for 2 look pretty nice.

Oh it's good, you should definitely try it.
It has a great new project wizard that does all the dirty work for you, and the plugins system looks promising. (openldev is in the process of having plugin system too btw.)
I think the 1.2 version was not working good with the latest gtkmm versions, this is all good now in 2.x series, plus the wxWidgets, Java and Python templates...

It's going in the right direction, and I never had any major issues or crashes with cvs version. :P

Well, perhaps you can help me out. I've installed Anjuta from source including the libraries, however, when I run it I get...


Code:
anjuta: error while loading shared libraries: libgdl-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


I have gdl installed (0.6 from gnome.org) and libgdl-1.so exists in /usr/local/lib/

Any ideas what I'm missing here?

Let me be more specific-- and I know this is a simple question but I've only been doin' the Linux thing for about a year.

The libraries have been installed to usr/local/lib however, my system looks to /usr/lib. Other than creating a whole slew of symbolic links, how can I specify either looking in /usr/local/lib OR have the installations put the files in usr/lib?
