While your GTK 2.x installation can probably be fixed, it will require
some terminal work using text mode or KDE or some other desktop.  And it
will take some effort, especially if you don't well understand your
distro's package manager.  Probably, you will just want to re-install
the OS and chalk it up as a lesson never to remove system components or
replace them unless you really know what you are doing.

If you want to play with GTK 3 on your Gnome2 box, build it with
jhbuild.  This will put everything GTK needs (dependencies, etc) in
/opt, where it won't conflict at all.  Though you do have to play with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH once you get everything built.
