How can I install Libgtk-3-dev on Ubuntu 10.04? If I try sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev I get Couldn't find Package. It's not a typo and it's in correctly so I have no idea where to go. Not going to upgrade. I cannot stand the distro's after 10.04. Thanks to anyone who can help.

If you're not upgrading, I see little utility in the package. Either way the dev sources are available here: – RobotHumans Dec 30 '12 at 5:36
Thanks. It's simply because some packages need it for compiliation. Kind of stupid to require it for packages that would otherwise run easily in 10.04, but I'm opinionated about it. :P – Morgan Green Dec 30 '12 at 5:43

That package is not available for ubuntu 10.04,It is the development libraries of GTk3 whereas 10.04 is a Gtk2 distro, So you can't install it in 10.04
