In the Ubuntu Software Center \ Development \ IDEs (Integrated Development Environment) you will probably find what you are looking for. The following are a few of the best: (at least in my opinion)

  • Geany supports most programming languages, but does not have features such as a designer, intellisense, etc.

  • Qt Creator probably has the most ease-of-use features, but only supports C++.
