Yes, but you then are responsible to get things right on your own, not
simply saying that Cairo developers are at fault.

So, your e-mail is already off-topic for this mailing list: the
problem is not Cairo but the way you configure your custom system.

By following Antonio's advice, you will already get whatever you need
to develop GTK3 software on your Ubuntu 18.04 system; there is no need
to get the exact versions given in the link

If following Antonio's advice you find out that you miss something to
develop your GTK3 software, you should post in the Ubuntu
forum/mailing list that deals with GTK3, not here.

Good luck!
