Suggest good GUI designer tool with programming language for linux based application. For a developer who knows winform and C#.

Don't want to use mono on linux to run .net application on linux. I have heard about GTK+ and Qt. What will be good for me.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You have heard about some UI toolkits, not "GUI designer tools". Nor programming languages. If you come from some Windows circles where people usually bundle language, UI design and text editor together, your confusion is understandable. But please be clear about what exactly are you looking for, and avoid expressions such as "best", go for "a good". You want suggestions, not a flame war, and "best" is something that seldom exists. Do you want a suggestion of a programming language to use? A suggestion of a toolkit? A suggestion of some WYSIWYG UI design tool? Of a text editor? – njsg Jan 28 '13 at 12:55
Why people send down vote without knowing the requirements or clarifications, although they option to edit the question or add comments to clarify more. Budy help required, not a down vote. – Narinder Bhullar Jan 28 '13 at 12:56
People are downvoting because "suggest a ___ for me" is counter to the spirit of the site. It's similar to shopping recommendations: see blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/11/qa-is-hard-lets-go-shopping – mattdm Jan 28 '13 at 14:01

I think you are looking for alternative of winform for C# in Linux, please look at the post on stackoverflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3693656/alternative-to-winforms-that-can-be-easily-used-with-c-sharp-and-net

Or search google for the same.

Many people in the Linux world frown upon C# and the whole .net stuff. Consider using Python with its Gnome or Qt (KDE) bindings. For Gnome, there is glade to design the GUI, which is mostly independent from the program behind it.
