How did you get the recommendation?
FYI, Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit already comes with GTK3, specifically version
3.22.30. And, the Ubuntu package of GTK3 only has the following
recommendation and suggestion: libgtk-3-bin, librsvg2-common, and gvfs
(you can see it yourself at
So, basically you are re-installing GTK3 when Ubuntu 18.04 already
ships with it. Why?

Ubuntu 18.04 has those packages already as you can see at
So, I don't see that someone else would want to follow your steps.
