Is there a way to know which GTK version is installed using the command line?

Is there a way to know which GTK version is installed using the command line?

I am working on Ubuntu 11.10.

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

apt-cache policy libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0 (optionally pipe to grep Installed)

or

dpkg -l libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0

Solution 2

Try this:

dpkg -l libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0

This will give info for both GTK 2 and 3.

Solution 3

–get-selections will show you the installed packages

dpkg --get-selections | grep gtk

Solution 4

  1. Open Synaptic Package Manager:
    enter image description here

  2. Under “Quick filter” enter “libgtk-3”.

  3. Gtk3 libraries are contained in “libgtk-3-0”. You may want to select it for convenience. Your installed version appears in the column “Installed version”.
    If you need additional information press the button “Properties”.

Solution 5

Try: dpkg-query -W libgtk-3-bin

# Gives version as 3.10.8, separated on the left by a tab, and on the right by a ~
$ dpkg-query -W libgtk-3-bin
libgtk-3-bin    3.10.8~8+qiana

# An associated package also gives the package architecture [for me]
$ dpkg-query -W libgtk-3-0
libgtk-3-0:amd64    3.10.8~8+qiana

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
