Debian and Ubuntu developer Iain Lane writes today on one of the mailing lists of the Ubuntu Linux operating system about the fact that he’s been working for the past few weeks on bringing GTK+ 3.20 support to Ubuntu.
According to Iain Lane, the latest GTK+ 3.20 GUI toolkit, which is usually shipped by default with the GNOME 3.20 desktop environment, is ready for upload on the Ubuntu software repositories, for Ubuntu Desktop. Still, he doesn’t mention for which Ubuntu version, so we can only guess that he’s talking about Ubuntu 16.10.
However, he provides us with a PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository that contains the latest GTK+ 3.20 packages, the Adwaita icon theme, a GTK3 port of Mozilla Firefox 47.0, as well as Baobab and Nautilus 3.20 apps. The PPA is only for Ubuntu 16.10, so do not attempt to install it on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) because it won’t work.
