What IDEs are available for Ubuntu?

I want to develop Python apps in Ubuntu, and I'm tired of working with gedit one time and another.

So I'm trying to find a great Python IDE (a true IDE, not just a syntax-highlighting editor) on the Ubuntu repositories. Which one do you recommend me?

If you want a professional IDE but not free, then you can buy Wingware.

In contrary, if you want a free professional IDE, then try Eric. The version 4 is for Python 2, and the version 5 is for Python 3.

Because this greatly varies from person to person, I recommend you just try out a few and find one you like. I am currently working with Eclipse + PyDev. (PyDev is an Eclipse plugin.)
