Xwindows programming in Ubuntu 7.04

Hi all

I am using ubuntu 7.04.
I would like to do some X windows programmings like displaying a window, interfacing keyboard, mouse etc in it...

But, i didnt see any Xlib or Xutils files in my system. Do I have to download some other files related to X11? I have only a basic system installed using the Ubuntu CD.
I have X11R6 directory in it. But it doesnt contain any include subdirectories.

How can I do the Xwindows programming in this system?

Thank you

You probably need to install the xorg-x11-devel package.

Also read up on the "gtk" and "qt" toolkits.
