What IDEs are available for Ubuntu?
What are some of the best Python IDEs for Ubuntu 12.04?
Would you benefit from me learning Python?
If you prefer working in IDE like Eclipse, then PyDev will be suitable for you.
By the way, using Python's interactive command line terminal is a good way to start learning Python.
I'm using eclipse with PyDev. It is a straight forward solution. You can get more informations in the following link http://pydev.org/manual_101_install.html
