Linux GUI Tutorials and Librays
 
I am trying to learn Linux GUI but have hit a few walls:
I cannot find a good tutorial
And I can't find any of the libs/.h stuff for it.
Could anyone help me find this?
I have google this but can't find anything!
Help... :(
Oh using C++\C
Linux GUI is In c++/c right? Like win GUI?
I know the code will be different.

Gtk+ and Qt are two major GUI libraries on Linux.

Also checkout GLADE and GLUT.

In your opinion, which do you think is easier?
Is there a different language that you think would be any easier?
I am perfectly willing to learn a new language (GUI programing is close enough to a new language).

Just stumbled upon: http://wiki.wxwidgets.org/WxWidgets_...Other_Toolkits . Not that I'm specifically advertizing wxWidgets, just a good comparison and thus a list of libraries/toolkits.

I have seen wxWidgets but it seems like more like one of those 'I'll do it for you' things and I fell learning the codeing helps me learn more about the os (WIN GUI sure did). But I'll look into it.

You can find the list of libraries/toolkits in the Wiki article.
