For a very simple C++ editor try "gide".  It's available from  I
had the same problem as I am trying to learn C++ on my own.  This one is very
simple but offers the compile/run options from within the editing window and
output springs up in an xterm.  For a debugger don't use gdb by itself.
Download the 'ddd' graphical front end for gdb which is excellent.  It is
available from multiple sources on the net.  Just search on 'ddd and linux'.
