Dear Allin,
I am trying your solution but it seems that Gretl is build using gtk2
Configuration:

  Installation path:                      /usr/local
  Use readline library:                   yes
  Use gnuplot for graphs:                 yes
  Use LaTeX for typesetting output:       yes
  Use libgsf for zip/unzip:               no
  MPFR support:                           yes
  sse2 support for RNG:                   yes
  OpenMP support:                         no
  AVX support for arithmetic:             no
  Build with GTK version:                 2.0
  Build gretl documentation:              yes
  Use Lucida fonts:                       no
  Build message catalogs:                 yes
  X-12-ARIMA support:                     yes
  TRAMO/SEATS support:                    yes
  libR support:                           yes
  ODBC support:                           no
  Experimental audio support:             no
  Use xdg-utils in installation:          if DESTDIR not set
but in terminal the gtk3 seems to be installed
*dpkg -s libgtk-3-0|grep '^Version' | cut -d' ' -f2-*
*3.8.6-0ubuntu3.1+broadway2 *
how can I force Gretl to builld againt GTK3.
I tested with gedit and it works perfectly.
