    New to linux GUI programming

    I am just getting started in programming (GUI's) in Linux. Given that I am coming from MSVC+ 6.0 environment, what tools should I use for development? So far I have just played with the trolltech QT designer that came with RedHat 7.3. Is this what I should use, or is there something better, or more familar?
    Best Regards,

    I like GTK+ for GUI development. But if your really intrested in learning Linux programming you should play with sockets and other Linux libraries first

    I didn't say I was new to linux programming. Just GUI's.

    What is the executable for the gtk+? I found gtk-config and gtk-demo. I can't find a gtk or gtk+ executable.

    Nevermind. I was expecting a gui development environment. I just looked up the details on gtk+. It appears it is just a toolkit and there is not shinny wrapper.

    Kdevelop is a nice GUI-developing IDE.
