You are going to have to be more descriptive. An IDE that ships with pythoncard doesnt mean anything to me. There are way too many out there.
The feature I like most is an option to run the script from the editor.
Every IDE does that.
In mint the terminal window doesn't open.
Be more descriptive. Mints terminal emulator or the embedded temrinal within the IDE?
Any idea how I run a script under Linux in such a way as to make terminal visible and useful?
