vim is a nice text editor for sources and support pascal syntax
highlighting. I think there is an IDE for Linux though, you'll find it
on the Free Pascal website.

There's also Lazarus that'll you find as well which you can use. It's
similar in many ways to Delphi and can be used for all your development
and gui needs (though I have not used it yet).

As far as a debugger goes, simply use gdb.

-You need only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape.
-If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40.
-If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
