This page will describe the process of installing the QT IDE (Integrated Development Environment) in Ubuntu, which should be the most accessible option for people with a non-linux background. If you prefer a different IDE you are welcome to use it, but other pages in the OpenCog for Noobs category may not align with your experience in that case.


Open up Ubuntu Software Center by double clicking it's icon (looks like a bag with fireworks coming out of it) in the Ubuntu menu bar on the left or open the Dash Home (the top icon in the bar) and search for Ubuntu Software center there:
