http://lazyfoo.net/SDL_tutorials/index.php

SDL is cross-platform and Valve poached the developer when they started working on Steam for Linux

lazyfoo.net has got a good reputation for SDL tutorials and a very active forum.

I'd also recommend http://www.gamedev.net/page/index.html if not for the forums then also for the articles which give guidance on game design and let you know how the industry is moving at the moment. Oh, use an IDE as well. I'd go with Code:Blocks over QtCreator if you're not writing Qt-specific applications. Been a long time since I did C++ but yeah.

Qt-Creator is a nice IDE as well as code::blocks
to compile you only need something like gcc and gdb for debugging
but you definitelly need a decent IDE for rapid application developement

I vote Eclipse, because, to be honest, among the four choices, Eclipse is the only one I'm familiar with. I've heard about gcc, it's used to compile C++ files, am I right?
Recently, I'm using sublime text. It's really excellent text editor. I really love it.

It looks like I'm in the minority here as I'm a huge fan of Netbeans, but I do use Code Blocks from time to time...  ;)

Still, for web development, I am a die-hard Brackets fans! I used to use Notepad++ on Windows but I love Brackets now.. Just used it to work on a jQuery project tonight it was very helpful! Mousepad is great too, especially for basic html/css work.

If you want a light editor that you can run over ssh or on just about any machine you might come upon, you could try Vim. I hear Emacs is good too...  but bleh...
