as31 80c51 development software

Hello all,
I am try to compile and install the as31 program development for the 80c51, but I am getting an error during compiling cannot find "gtk/gtk.h" I downloaded it from /

I send an email to "", he toll me to install gtk1.2-dev indicating that, On Ubuntu, the command is:
"apt-get install libgtk1.2-dev"
it still produces the error.
I will appreciate if any body can help.

I am using an HP laptop zv6000 running Fedora 14 and appears that gtk2 and gtk3 is installed

This is the result:

[Vinny@HP1 ~]$ apt-get install libgtk1.2-dev
bash: apt-get: command not found...

Fedora uses yum for install, not apt.
Fedora also uses package names that are quite different
from the Debian/Ubuntu names.

1) su <enter password>
2) yum install gtk+-devel

... which will provide version 1.2.10

Thank you so much, the "yum install gtk+-devel" command worked very well
