So now you are trying to use GTK 2 on Ubuntu 12.04???
What exactly do you hope to gain by using a newer GTK on an old version of Ubuntu, and or an old GTK on a newer version of Ubuntu?
When using Ubuntu, your best bet is to stick with the default packages in the Ubuntu repos. This is especially true for important system components like GTK.
I make me slime that someone is following my threads. :-)
A bit of History, I started using Ubuntu more than 2 yeas ago, I stared using 10.04 and I did like it because all work from the installation and I like the apt-get way to get package installed. Until today I can still using my 10.04 drive and all working fine actually better that it does in 12.04 and perhaps even my Slackware (Just because you need to do loot to get this looking and doing nicely)
What I am doing: All this start because I want to create drawing on a canvas windows, doing it like an Oscilloscope. I know It could be done in GTK2 (worth to mention I wanted to do it in C, I want to keep in only C if possible) But when I started searching someone advice me to start learning GTK3 in stead so I did try to get it going, which I've found out you cannot do it in 10.04 (apparently), So I decided it was time to move on in OS and get something more difficult (better) so I am planing to stay in Slackware at the end.
So know I have two drive, one with the 10.04 as it has been for the last 2 years at least (Which will be deleted at some point) and A new drive with 12.04 (Transition Ubuntu) as I test/config/learn slackware.
A bit more: What I want now is have a OS which work as 10.04 or better, Ideally same or similar features on the X server as 10.04 and be able to do the same things as in my 10.04 drive. plus GTK ideally could compile GTK2 and GTK3 in the same distro.
If you want more details of all application and things I do please let me know, But I feel that is not what you are asking! ;-)
