Builder is a IDE for gtk development, how can I install it on elementary?

2 Answers 2


You can not install Gnome Builder on elementary, because it requires GTK 3.16, while elementary uses GTK 3.14.

    @Adityaultra Assuming this answer is right, when Gnome backport the IDE (unlikely) or when elementary upgrades GTK (Loki, a year or two) or when we figure out how to run it without first ruining everything (Cassidy James is looking into this right now).
