    Since I have some knowledge in Python, I am planning to use Python as my programming language.

    Is Python and GTK/Glade a good combination to work with?

    With what language most of the GTK/Glade applications are created?

    I guess it's C/C++, but Python is good too, ( as its being my primary language )

    Python is good with PyGTK, but I prefer to use PyQt.
    because of following reasons.

    • Better documentation
    • Also supports Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile, not just Win,Mac and Lin
    • Larger libraries, with complete framework.
    • Easier and cleaner code.
    • Better GUI builder


    But GTK+ isn't bad.
    • Its better with resources and performance.
    • Bindings for more languages.
    • Used more than QT



    Its better to stick with your language, don't switch your programming language for GUI toolkit, while you can switch GUI toolkit.

    My suggestion would be ,check Sourceforge.net for simple GTK GUI applications and learn from it.

    That's how I have created my UI (with GTK+/Glade)from simple prime number computing application isPrime | Get isPrime at SourceForge.net
