One alternative you could try is FLTK with the pyfltk wrapper. It's
multiplatform, pure GPL GUI toolkit. FLTK comes with "Fluid" a really nice
and easy gui builder. The output of Fluid can be converted to python via
flconvert which is a tool for pyfltk.
I'm trying FLTK out now, and beeing a beginner like you, I find it quite
easy to work with.
You could still use Eric, it's a great code editor. It has some bugs
though, but thats another story.
