There's nothing to say really. C/C++ is the same. The only things that change are the libraries, and that should be easy to switch.

If you want to do C programming in linux or in general I highly suggest purchasing the Kerhnigan (SIC) and Ritchies (SIC) The C Programming Languag (ANSI C) it's the best book that you could ever purchase in regards to C programming, hell they are the guys that created it. It's also got a good section on programming in a Unix enviroment (LINUX is a unix enviroment) it'll get you started on how to manipulate files and how to do pipes and mutex and all that good stuff. Remember that linux is all about small programs that work together not like windows where you have large massive programs that are bloated and slow and buggy.

If you're looking to make games for linux, the easiest place to start is SDL.

EDIT: If you're looking to do apps with a GUI, GTK+ and Qt are both good. Though Qt is free if you're willing to release your source code under the GPL, if you don't want to release your code it is dual licensed, but the commercial license is rather expensive.
