I'm wanting to learn coding and thought Java would be a good place to start. I'm wondering if anybody knows of a good IDE for Linux (as I recently installed Linux Mint on my laptop). Also a good pdf or video series tutorial. Any help would be appreciated.
for a good "noob" friendly tutorial i can recommend vswe courses, (http://courses.vswe.se/) he also branches out to minecraft coding later on if you'd like that. Though i'm sure you should have no problem using what you've learned in something else.
for a IDE if you follow vswe courses, dr.java is the one used early on, and seems like a great tool for beginners, and Eclipse is a good one to use no matter what platform.
Please keep in mind that i'm not the most experienced with java coding so a second opinion would be good to concider. Also, most people recommend python to start with incase you haven't noticed :)
So when I started out learning Java (quite awhile ago), the best resource was the "official" java tutorial. I find its quite simple, if you can figure out Eclipse plenty fine (its pretty simple once you get a hang of it), the tutorial goes extremely smooth. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/ is the Java trail.
Thanks guys. I will check both of those out.
I have a couple IDE's which are all fantastic. It really depends on personal taste however.

@Devon is correct about the "official" tutorials. That's really where I learned a lot of GUI stuff.
I'm not sure on PDF tutorials, but you can buy a book online. Just look 'em up.
