How were you trying to install it? RPM or source?

The easier way to install packages is to let YaST resolve dependencies,
so you could select gtk2 in YaST and it'll install everything that it
requires too.

If you're installing this software from source, you'll need to install
gtk2-devel as well, that contains the development headers, but may not
be included with the Personal edition (not sure...)
