So I'm a novice programmer. I'm familiar with python(no expert) and have used it for most of the little home projects I've written for myself. In my quest for knowledge earlier today I happened upon an IDE named Anjuta that seems to fit in with my Gnome desktop very well, and has some nifty tools.

However, being a novice programmer, I'm not 100% certain of what some of the language used means. What I'm trying to do is use Anjuta to take a file I wrote a long time ago, make and save changes, then compile that file to a Unix binary, or hopefully, a source tarball that others can compile on their own processor architectures. It appears as if Anjuta was made for this kind of stuff. Writing your own code, autogenerating the necessary resources for compiling it, etc.

So I moved a copy of the .py file I had written into a new folder just to experiment with. I edited and saved the changes I wanted to make. After creating a new project from an existing source file in Anjuta, it recognized my .py file and added two more, "TODO.tasks" and "KillDisk.anjuta". The project name is KillDisk, so I get where the filename is from.

So whenever I click on any options in the "Build" menu, an option is automatically filled in as "--enable-maintainer-mode". Whenever I click "OK", I get the following error in the output at the bottom of the main window.

/usr/bin/autoreconf: unrecognized option `--enable-maintainer-mode'

As I said, a very novice programmer who's just diving into an IDE that's more robust than the built in "IDLE" that comes with python. I would like to continue using Anjuta or something just as useful and easy to learn, and I know I have a lot to learn, so I'm picking your brains. While I wait on a response, I'm going to hit up the Anjuta website.

I would say, just go get KDevelop with the Python plugin. It is much better than Anjuta. It runs in GNOME, and uses the GNOME theme, even though it is a KDE application.

I'll check it out, also found one while reading "A Byte of Python" that was in the Debian repos called "Geany", I'll give them all a shot, thanks!

I've used the PyDev plugin in Eclipse, it works fine. I don't know how it compares to other python IDEs, but speaking generally it seems fine, good debugging support.

i agree with Dr_Asik, i've tried idle for python dev, and didn't like it one bit, so i installed eclipse with pydev and it works like a charm, the features of anjuta are there and it's more cleaner so to say.
