you need to download and install gtk, it seems...kubuntu/ubuntu has an apt system i think for handling downloads and dependencies, which would help you greatly....

this might help you out a bit...

in Kubuntu or Ubuntu, you have to use SUDO. So at the command prompt. you can type SUDO SU <enter> then enter password and then you can enter commends normally.

this should fix all probs.

Go to the Kmenu, system, Knaptic. Enter your user password. Search, gtk, see what comes up. Click on the gtk lib that you need then install. You should read the ubuntu started guide at www.ubuntuguide.org too.
