I think Python is a great place to start, but if you learn C++, then most other languages (save maybe ASM) will be a breeze.

With the right resources, python is quite easy to learn (and powerful). Also, C++ is a fast powerful, lower-level, but slightly more complicated language (but http://www.cplusplus.com/ is a great resource).

Saying that C++ is slightly more complicated than Python is like saying that an aeroplane is slightly more complicated than a spoon.

Whatever you decide to learn, make sure it can do what you want to do. I like making web sites, so I am learning PHP and SQL. If you like programs that run from the command line, C++, Perl, and Python are great languages. Regardless, if you aren't enjoying what you do, you won't learn as well and you won't want to keep learning.

Using C++ and GTK is not a problem.
Using Python and PyGTK is not a problem.
Using Perl and GTK is not a problem.
Why would you write a program which runs from the command line then?

Actually, you could without a problem write PHP-scripts which runs from the command line too, or using GTK2 with PHP.

I may have over-simplified my response. My intention was simply to get him/her learning on the right track, instead of slogging through page after page of tutorials for a language s/he won't enjoy.
