i tried that but it didn't work--compiling a test helloworld file results in a unknown header error
gcc: pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0: No such file or directory
gtk.c:1:21: error: gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory

that's my same problem.
when you compile try this that should work
gcc -o helloworld helloworld.c `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`

I am now facing the same problem,too. What was wrong? Or may be the command sudo aptitude install gnome-core-devel build-essential still not enough.

I fear that's some obsolete method... or one that is applied from some other distro... whatever, I never had heard of such gnome-core-devel package before.
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
(and also install "build-essential" if you haven't).
But also, I highly recommend you to install GTK+'s docs and the very nice GNOME's Devhelp documentation browser (which you will be able to access from Applications->Programming):
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-doc devhelp

You compile a GTK+ program like this:
gcc hello.c -o hello `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`
Note the use of backticks ` instead of straight quotes '.

thanks nvteighen and jespdj...

so install gtk in ubuntu:
sudo apt get install gnome-core-devel build-essential install libgtk2.0-dev libgtk2.0-doc devhelp
