    Want to learn Linux GUI programming


    Hey, guys, could you give me some pointers on some good refs/tutorials on Linux GUI programming in general, and Gnome programming in particular?
    Thanks in advance.

    BTW, I come from a Windows GUI programming background, and I've written some command-line apps in Linux.

    Languages like Perl and Python ( in combination with the Glade GUI builder) uses GTK+ to develope Linux Applications. GTK+ uses three main libraries, Glib, Pango and ATK. check this tutorial. it has some useful links to GTK+, Qt and Motif.

    There's nothing easier than GNUstep! Building GUIs is as easy as dragging and dropping with GORM. Heck, even I could do it and I can't program for anything is this world. Here's the developer's guide from the Wiki:
    http://wiki.gnustep.org/index.php/Developer_Guides

    As you've come from Windows, using GORM is very much like using Visual Studio. The hardest part is having to learn a new subset of C (Objective-C), but there's also Java, Ruby, Python and Perl (JIGS, RIGS, PyObjC and CamelBones respectively). The best part is that generally everything from GNUstep also works on MacOS X.

    Thanks for the help!

    BTW, what are your opinions on Qt? Is it good? Do you recommend it?
