As far as just the linux distro goes, debian is probably not the best
choice for newbies.  I'd pick Ubuntu (which is based on debian) as a
great introductory distribution.  Using it's GUI package manager you
should be able to install all the compiler tools and libraries to do
coding for GTK and other things.  Kdevelop, Anjuta, or even Eclipse are
great IDEs.  For GUI development in GTK, Glade is the best tool for
doing layouts (Anjuta might even embed it).
