We come across these terms when you come across an application built based on GTK+ or any other version of GTK+. When you want to change the theme of your desktop,  you will see notes like these themes work for GTK+ 3x or GTK+ 2x etc. How to know what are GTK+ versions your system runs. So, for every problem or puzzle there is solution and this article might help you solve it.

Method 1:
  •  COLUMNS=150 dpkg --list libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0

Method 2:
  •   dpkg --list libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0

Method 3:
  •  apt-cache show libgtk2.0-0 libgtk-3-0 | grep Version

Method 4:
  • For detailed view,
      • apt-cache show libgtk2.0-0
