Presumably you mean the 'gtk' module in Python rather than the
matplotlib backend... Try:
apt-get install python-gtk2 python-gtk2-dev
You should then be able to use
without error at the python prompt. Hopefully the matplotlib package
for Ubuntu has the GTK backend built in and they just forgot to tag
the dependency; if not, you may be stuck compiling from source (which
admittedly is not hard).
