Re: import Gtk issue

The typelib is shipped(it's built to be more precise) with Gtk.
On ArchLinux the typelibs are installed to...

% pacman -Ql gtk3 | grep 'typelib'
gtk3 /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/Gdk-3.0.typelib
gtk3 /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/GdkX11-3.0.typelib
gtk3 /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/Gtk-3.0.typelib

you can find where (if) the gtk typelib are installed and then set the
GI_TYPELIB_PATH enviroment varibable. for example:

export GI_TYPELIB_PATH=/usr/lib/girepository-1.0

and try run your script again.
