Is there a way in which I can use the internally generated library of

How do I get the headers for development? Its not available when I do
"apt-get install gnumeric" on my Ubuntu 12.04. I only get the Gnumeric
Application and the libspreadsheet Shared Library installed on my PC, not
the library header files which are essential for development and linking.

It's a defect in the Debian packages, see my bug reports on Launchpad
and Debian:

Unfortunately, my bug reports concerning this matter have been largely
ignored so far. :( Other major Linux distributions like Arch, Fedora
and openSUSE all include the libspreadsheet development files. For
Debian-based distributions, you need to compile and install Gnumeric
from source, or you can use my Gnumeric packages for Ubuntu 10.04,
11.04, 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04 at The
PPA for Ubuntu 12.04 is here:
