    It's nice to hear that you've joined us! AFAIK, there is a compiler built-in with most Linux systems; not sure it's C++ compatible in Knoppix. I found this site with a quick Google search for
    C++ IDE and Compiler +linux
    In order to do this, you'll want to "install" Knoppix, which these days means (preferably) to put it on either a hard drive or a flash drive with some "persistent store" space. I use both media types myself; see this post or this one for more about putting it on a hard drive alongside another OS. Once you have that done, look for a Debian-compatible install source for your new programs; Knoppix can use other forms of install package, but if you can find one that supports Debian specifically it'll probably be easier to get it into your system and keep it updated.

    Hope that helps!

    WhatI see is Knoppix has got Eclipse IDE for Java but not for C++. Not sure at this moment if its just a plugin that needs to be added, still trying to figure my way around it. P.S. : I am a newbee, so my problem might be really stupid, suggestions are always welcome.

    Eclipse does indeed have a plugin for C++, but you might be better off trying to find a recent version of Bloodshed Dev C++ if there is one available for linux.
