You can compile your programs with C++ in the command line - you don't have to have a full enterprise IDE with a GUI and all. Navigate to the directory with the .cpp program, and use g++ with the "-std=c++11" flag and it will compile it to C++ 11. For example: g++ -std=c++11 your_file.cpp I did a lot of my Kernel coding through compiling in command line.

Many people end up using QtCreator. It can do C++, Qt, Python. Hardcore way is Emacs. You can do a lot of things when you master it, but it is a big when. Netbeans is a nice, but heavy thing. Eclipse even nicer and heavier. Best of all start with QtCreator. Its scripting can mimic to some extent most cool features you heard of in others.

Well I don't know what may be a problem with Dev-C++, but if you would like to build Windows applications under Ubuntu, I would strongly suggest other alternatives.

I would go for super tux kart! It's like mario kart but with a Linux feel to it :) It's a 3D game but it has simple graphics and it's done in a playful way. It's available in the software center or from sourceforge. As you can see below, it works well with a 4-way split screen.

...why not use a script? Check xclip (sudo apt-get install xclip) xclip -o -selection clipboard will send the clipboard to standard output, and with -i you can replace the clipboard. So xclip -o -selection clipboard | sed "s/change this/to this/" | xclip -i -selection clipboard will apply the change to the selection, and now you can paste it. ...
