I am looking for C++ software development tools under Fedora for desktop applications. What is available, and where can they be found? I understand AMD has an open SDK which may assist. Are any of the available tools compatible?

What I would like is a compiler suite that has RAD for windowing and widgets.

Also, what documentation is available on API functions?

Your help is much appreciated!

The development tools are available as part of the core packages. There is a detailed description about installing them here:

You might want to consider which kind of desktop apps you want to develop, there are two broad categories for desktop apps. KDE ones use the QT toolkit, while Gnome ones use the GTK toolkit. They're both different and capable. You might want to look into both before you decide which you want to use. And, as ever in Linux, there are alternatives to these too.

You shouldn't need 3rd party SDKs, but that doesn't mean you can't use them, download them and take a browse through.

If you want to make any application related to AVR or ARM or even general console applications in c++, codeblocks is really helpful in terms of workspace ease. if you need anything more specific, you can even download a few plugins.
