I can build pycairo with and without X/GTK/PyGTK on my PC and these
examples work for both builds. I do not think that building with or
without X/GTK/PyGTK is the problem.
Try building without X on your laptop (move /usr/lib/pkgconfig/gtk
+-2.0.pc or edit configure.in) - do the examples work on the laptop?

These examples are python versions of demos from the 'cairo-demos'
package. Try installing 'cairo-demo' and running the original C versions
cairo-demo/cairo_snippets/cairo_snippets_png  with the gradient.cairo
Do they work?
