Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I don't really know how to phrase it, but I am not looking to use an actual IDE (codeblocks, netbeans, eclipse, etc).

I have tried to follow several different tutorials, but things keep getting screwed up along the way and nothing ever quite fits as it is supposed to.

https://earthserver.com/Setting_up_a_C%2B%2B11_development_environment_on_Linux_with_Clang_and_Emacs

The above link is essentially what I want to do, but there is next to no trouble-shooting for when something goes wrong.

Can someone please point me in a dummy proof direction so I can get started?

I am willing to learn but am not getting anywhere after nearly two weeks of hitting road blocks.

I am currently running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit.

I am on a fresh install, so I can't imagine anything would be screwed up right now.
