Okay this makes no sense to me. I was doing some programming and makes executable files with the g++ compiler…then all the sudden HEY im g++ i don’t want to compile or make executable files anymore but ill still let you code in c++ and read but just say f you when you wanna compile it. Wtf…??? Is this just a broken program? Is there any other c++ compiling programs with a interface that bundles your source files and header files and points out keywords like Vissual c++ on windows? I am honestly dieing here and im about 2 mins from throwing this laptop into heavy traffic and hurling myself into the automobiles right after.>:(

There are IDEs to do some of the pretty stuff of an IDE in any language,
sure, but that’s not what a compiler is. A compiler(/linker) is an
application to change later-generation programming languages
(C/C++/Java/etc.) to machine language (zeros and ones) in a way that lets
the commands be executed. One I’ve heard mentioned before in these forums
is ‘kdevelop’. Others include NetBeans, Eclipse, even things like ‘vim’
(Vi IMproved) do syntax highlighting for you.
A quick Google search for ‘programming ide linux’ gives me almost five
million hits starting with this one:

Thank you. Sorry i have so many posts going. I just got this the other day, my first linux os ive ever ran. Im trying to figure everything out and make things work and they just don’t wanna work with me. Im a mess running on very little sleep while ive been trying to get this to run everything i need and for me to actually understand how it works while im running it. I can’t even get my wifi card going and ive read the stickies in the wireless section like 10 times ><. Anyways, how do i install eclipse (one of the ide progs) when its done downloading? Also how do i install firmware? God im a lost cause.
Just search in the Yast tool (Software Management). Eclipse is already there. Select and press “Accept” button to install.
If you want to a another GUI based development environment, just try kdevelop (again available through Yast).
Um so how do you run eclipse? The executable is the icon in the file that is a cog. But when i click it nothing happens. Do i just run all executables our of Xterminal?
If you are running KDE, it should appear under Menu (SUSE Lizard Icon) -> Applications -> Development.
No such luck, there is not development tab under applications for me and im running kde4.
Just search in the menu (there is a search option at the top end of the menu). Search for eclipse.
If that doesn’t work for some reason, open console (you can try konsole program under KDE not just xterm) and type
