Hmmm.  On Ubuntu 8.04 I just dl'd, built and installed from source 
cairo-clock-0.3.4.tar.gz.  When I try to run cairo-clock I get the 
error message:

"You are not running under a composited desktop-environment (e.g. 
compiz). cairo-clock cannot work properly without one."

(I also got an internal GTK error message from cairo-clock which 
suggested that this app is not GTK-correct.)

allin myrtle:~$ pkg-config --modversion gtk+-2.0

Not totally up-to-the-minute, but hardly ancient.
