GUI Creation on a Linux Machine

I have some experience with writing algorithms in C/C++ (signal processing and a few academic exercises), but little idea as the best way to write an app that could allow for user interaction through a GUI?

How would you get your class/algorithm into a GUI?

Are there good C++ libraries? What about C?
Do you just wrap the code in java or python? rewrite it in java or python?
Or something else entirely?

I prefer wxPython using python as I love python and it uses good signal handling, and GUI control methods. Although if you want to write some of it in C/C++ then I would not recommend it since the Python C API is very confusing. I don't know and GUI libraries for C/C++ but you could always google it...

If you like the look of wxPython you could use the wxWidgets which is exactly the same thing. wxPython just connects wxWidgets to python

Thanks for the starting points.
Time to use those Barnes and Noble gift certificates before they expire!
