Most Linux packages can be ported/used on any Linux based system but it might help if you can tell us what Linux OS you're using. I know there are several very good Visual C++ IDE programs for Linux but I'll have to lookup the links for you.

Edit: Here are a few links with downloads and good info <-- many links and tips ... +Tips.html <-- Things to watch out for <-- Used with KDE <-- Good and has a large user support community with many available plugins. Make sure you download the version for C++ or whatever language you end up wanting to use.

Edit 2: It occurs to me that you're asking in another thread for help with PIC programming. If you're looking for a C++ IDE so you can program your PICs A visual version with support for a GUI interface isn't needed. If you need a way to program PICs on Linux you should checkout sdcc which is an open source C compiler for embedded applications (sdcc = small device c compiler). You might also want to checkout gpsim which is a free and open source program that lets you simulate a PIC to test your code visually. If you use Ubuntu both programs are available in the repos.

I would recommend using java over any visual studio if you have a linux based system.

Code can be ported over cleanly to both windows and linux.

You can look at my projects here

as long as alternative languages are being mentioned - I'd suggest learning python. It's pretty easy to get started with it and there is a huge support community. Runs on just about everywhere.

If you want to build visual stuff, try tk/gtk.

If you're looking for a Visual Basic feel in the way of dragging buttons and text boxes onto a palette then writing code behind them (ala VB6, VS Express), take a look at Eclipse. IBM and the open-source community have built a decent GUI designer in Eclipse for the SWT. It's not quite as seamless as the Visual Studio products are, but the price is right and you won't be bound to product releases from Redmond once you get going.

The NetBeans stuff from SUN comes with a pretty good GUI designer, too.

Hope this helps.

I agree that KDevelop is great for QT/KDE-based programs, and a new release is in the works, IIRC. If you want to do GTK/GNOME-based apps, try Anjuta (I haven't used it myself, but I've heard it's good. For a GTK designer, you'll probably want GLADE. These are all likely available from your distro's repositories, and that's always the recommended way to get a hold of them, unless you have a particular reason not to ;)

Just take your OS files and see how it is set up for it to be a distro, it should tell you how to recognize what system you are on and etc. Then create a rpm file and see how it launches on your own system.

you can do it visual(Basic,c,c++) for linux.If you can not have source file for this then better you go with internet searching.In linux you can have visul basic,c,and c++ but you can write different command for this and lengthy programming for this.

If you have the latest Ubuntu/Kubuntu (9.10) look up "quickly" (which is based on Python). Very VB-like. ... ubuntu.ars

I personally like Gambas. See: ... -4VrYkGlHE
