Without checking the web the first one that comes to mind is
This is a graphical front end to gdb. I've used it a couple of times and
it worked ok.
There is also the GNU Visual Debugger (GVD), I've never
but it looks a lot like DDD and I believe it's also a front end to gdb.
Kdevelop  is supposed to have integrated debugger, but it's
not just a debugger. And since we're talking KDE there is also Kdbg ,
the KDE graphical debugger.
There are a bunch of ther things out there, like Valgrind ,
debugger, for those nasty leaks. Or xwpe , which is the Borland development
All of these are probably in freshmeat.net with a search for debugger.
In summary, I've only used ddd and tried a couple of the
rest to see
if they ran but haven't used them. All of this probably more than a year
ago, so things should be better. Printf is my debugger.
