I documented previously the Eeebuntu GNU/Linux 3.0 Standard installation. My intent now is to document the process to make this into a development environment. Since this is an ongoing process, it is possible that I will make new entries that supplement this one, but, for now I hope that this will make the process repeatable and potentially automated.
An important note is that I used the Synaptic Package Manager instead of the command line apt-get package handling utility, so, the commands I'll place bellow maybe won't lead to the result I currently have. This is nevertheless an attempt to automate the process and for this a command line is always better than a list of steps to be performed in some GUI tool.
Install latest Emacs, which is the basis for the majority of text editing and Lisp development.
sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot-gtk emacs-snapshot-el
Several version control systems:
sudo apt-get install git-core git-doc git-gui git-svn subversion
Common Lisp implementations and support for its development:
sudo apt-get install cl-swank cl-asdf common-lisp-controller sbcl sbcl-doc sbcl-source slime
Standard C++ development support (maybe I should install boost also).
sudo apt-get install g++ g++-multilib gdb gdb-doc
Python 2.6 development environment (in the future I will probably install the latest Python 3.x also):
sudo apt-get install idle-python2.6 python2.6-doc python2.6-examples
For future reference I leave here the log of the day when I picked and installed the tools for software development environment.

I have also some more software that currently is installed in my
- Sun JDK 1.6 – for Java development and building from source, which I currently use mainly for ArgoUML and Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL);
- Eclipse Ganymede (Eclipse 3.4, TODO, update to Eclipse Galileo which is 3.5) – which I use for ArgoUML development;
- PLT Scheme – to try out Scheme;
- Second Interpreter of Scheme Code (SISC) – ditto;
- ArgoUML – this is both installed and checked out from Subversion;
- Armed Bear Common Lisp (ABCL) – a Common Lisp implementation for the JVM checked out from Subversion repository.
