I installed STATA9 on Linux Fedora 9. When I started it, the system informed that "/usr/local/stata9/xstata-se: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Could you help me to solve this error?
You need to install gtk+-1.2 on your system.

Stata still uses the old (and increasing obsolete) Gtk+-1 libraries for
rendering the GUI (development of Gtk+1 finished with gtk+1.2.10).  On
most GNU/Linux systems this been superseeded by the Gtk+-2 libraries (I
maintain the Gtk+-1 library purely and solely for Stata on my systems).

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the Fedora package management system,
but as its pedigree stems from RedHat, I susecpt its RPM based and you
will have to use either the RPM command line syntax of 'rpm -i [package
name/version]' or use whatever GUI you use for installing packages (and
note that you'll need to either do this as root or use sudo).
