I do not see Neil reanswering us.

I have been using Fedora and as I said before:
Fedora does not provide gtk+1.2 by default any more since Fedora 5 (or 
may be 4). You must download it manually (or if you added another yum 
repos it could work by an yum issue on command line).

Alex gave you a place to download the RPM you need and I think I 
provided before another. Anyway this is another place to download from:
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/7200838/com/gtk+-1.2.10-61.fc9.i386.rpm.html

Just for clarification Stata 9 uses that old gtk. But since Stata 10 gtk 
2 is used.

Good Luck
