You need the GTK 1.2 packages installed: 'sudo aptitude install libgtk1.2'

You might also want to investigate the 'apt-file' tool, which when
updated can allow you to more easily find which package contains the
file in question.

Finally you can search the content of packages at -- searching for a substring, such as
'libgtk-1.2' is often better than using the full version numbered string
with libraries.
