Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to install my gtk but when i try "configure --prefix=/opt/gtk" the compiler shows me this errors:
configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.7.1 atk >= 1.0.1 pan go >= 1.9.0 cairo >= 0.9.2) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively you may set the BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIB S environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for
Have you installed glib-2.8, atk-1.10, cairo-1.0 and pango-1.10? Where did you install them. In the gtk source folder read gtk+-2.8.3/docs/reference/gtk/html/gtk-building.html then set CPPFLAGS, LDFLAGS, PKG_CONFIG_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to where you installed glib-2.8, atk-1.10, cairo-1.0 and pango-1.10
All of those (except cairo) depend on glib, so you need to install it first. Once you've done that, I'd install cairo, then atk, then pango, then gtk. Your profile says you use Debian, if you type in this it'll install it all for you:
# never used debian or a derivitate so this is my best guess at a package name
apt-get install gtk

I have been configure make make install with cairo, pando atk and glib but my gdk won't compile:
Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.7.1' but version of GLib is 2.6.6
configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.7.1 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.9.0 cairo >= 0.9.2) were not met.
Have you actually read the error you posted? You have the wrong version of glib installed. Fix that and it'll either work or tell you that you have the wrong version of something different installed...
as far as guarantee your make(s) will all install properly, doubt it. Seems to me these gtk+ releases are very ifi and weird to install because of what version to use with what distro and what dependency versions work.
