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.


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.
