I am a newbie in Linux and I used to do programming in C/C++ in Windows using Visual Studio but in Linux I find many ways in the internet to do that in Linux. I read something about creating a make file and then compiling using gcc and other options was to use an IDE. Can anyone help me choose and possibly direct me to some tutorials so that I can ger started. My goal is to choose a programming environment to run openCV. Thanks for your help.
