If your working platform is Linux, a combination of VIM/GVIM along with cscope and/or ctags would be the best combination.

If you are used to IDE like Visual Studio, then you can also use Anjuta on Linux.

Seeing that you are not a 'native' Linux developer, I'd recommend using a IDE that is cross-platform, so you'll also be able to use it on Linux and on your home platform.

In this respect, I'd suggest you take a look at:

Eclipse: http://www.eclipse.org/
       (look at their innumerable plugins: http://marketplace.eclipse.org/)
Ultimate++: http://ultimatepp.org/
Code::Blocks: http://www.codeblocks.org/
CodeLite: http://www.codelite.org/

For my personal taste, Eclipse has always been a bit too much for just an IDE. It can even be intimidating. I prefer to use a more 'manageable' environment.

Other than the IDEs mentioned, Anjuta is quite capable, and so is KDevelop, if you are running a KDE desktop.
