If those are your requirements, you must try Geany.
it's lightweight (pulls in few dependencies)
it uses the GTK toolkit only (version "2.6")
it has tabs
it has nice syntax highlighting
it is noob-friendly
it has a terminal
IIRC, it has color schemes?
It even has nice auto-complete and code browser.
It's very stable. (I encounter no crash in several months)
This is the most handy gtk+2 only lightweight code editor I've ever seen.
