I followed it in Ubuntu 10.04. But it is not working – Gunaseelan Feb 10 '15 at 13:50

Unfortunately, you do not give a lot information, so I can only make a guess. I would look in the Windows menu under MDI mode. Toplevel and Childframe modes give you multiple windows, IDEAI is probably what you want.
