I am looking for guide/tips on developing a graphical user interface (GUI) for a Linux executable that I am interested on. How do I go about doing it? What applications/resources do I need?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Requests for learning materials (tutorials, how-tos etc.) are off topic. The only exception is questions about where to find official documentation (e.g. POSIX specifications). See the Help Center and our Community Meta for more information." – Jeff Schaller, thrig, andcoz, Hunter.S.Thompson, GAD3R
You need the compiler, dev libraries, header files, etc. for generic programming "stuff".
Then you need to decide on a GUI tool kit to use - GTK, QT, wxWidgets, etc - or choose to reimplement the wheel and do it all yourself.
