Setting up GTK for GNU/Linux and Unix
In order to install GTK for GNU/Linux and Unix systems, you will need to get the GLib, GObject-Introspection, Pango, Gdk-Pixbuf, ATK and GTK packages to build GTK. To read more about these packages, please refer to the Architecture.
To build an environment for GTK, install all the dependencies listed below:
The current stable API version of GTK3 is 3.24.
To build the latest development version of GTK it is recommended to use a tool like JHBuild, which will download, and optionally build, all the required project dependencies.
Some applications still require GTK 2, an older stable version of GTK. You can have the run-time and development environments for GTK 3.x, GTK 2.x and GTK 1.2 installed simultaneously on your computer.
