Hi Pranjal
of course you can keep your linux version, you don't need to switch to 
fedora. Package names vary accross distributions, in synaptics you might 
want to search for libglib2-dev or something similar. Usually, the 
package xx-devel is called xx-dev on Debian derivates if it's a 
software, or libxx-dev if it's a lib.
