According to Synaptic package manager I have version 1:7.3+10ubuntu10.2 of both xorg and xserver-xorg, the latest version. I am trying to install gtk+3.0.0 and when I run 'make' it works until this point where I get the following:

make  all-recursive

make[3]: Entering directory `/home/administrator/source_files/gtk+-3.0.0/gdk'

Making all in x11

make[4]: Entering directory `/home/administrator/source_files/gtk+-3.0.0/gdk/x11'

Don't edit "SOLVED" into your title or post. Post the solution as an answer. – ChrisF May 24 '11 at 16:12
I had tried but got a message that I would not be able to until after 8 hours. So I put it into to the post so people would know right away. – snooper May 26 '11 at 1:43
In that case add a comment to the same effect. – ChrisF May 26 '11 at 7:57

snooper's own solution:

3.0.0 was an older version of gtk+3, I was informed that there was a bug fixes that is now a macro around the inclusion of the file "X11/extensions/XInput2.h". I was able to install 3.0.10 without any problems.
