I think that the answer to your question "why are you compiling..."
is already below:

Indeed, there is an instruction how to compile GTK+ from scratch but
it does not say that this instruction is not encouraged for modern
Linux distributions which deliver GTK+ in a built binary.
Also the incorrectly installed GTK+ does not prevent the system from
booting but may prevent GUI (X, Wayland, GDM, GNOME) from starting
which may mean the same from the beginner's point of view.
Jin, you should not follow that instruction which you followed.
This is not for beginners. Now as you say that your system does
not boot, in your case probably it's easier to reinstall it from
If you really need GTK+ version 3.21.9 and newer (note: the number
21 or any other odd number instead means this is a developers release,
for developers who develop GTK+ itself, not those who use GTK+ to
develop other applications, you should need 3.22.0 instead) and
it really looks like you do you should instead (choose one):
- use a newer version of Ubuntu, it does not have to be LTS,
- use a different distribution (e.g., Fedora 25 which is the oldest
supported version ships GTK+ 3.22 series),
- create a virtual machine and install a newer distribution,
- use JHBuild  which will download the newest GTK+ source and
build and install it locally without destruction of your whole
gtk-list mailing list
