RGtk2 *should* prompt you to install GTK+ if the loading fails. Did it popup a menu asking you to install GTK+? Did you click yes? Did you allow it to set your PATH environment variable? And did you restart R afterwords? (the next version of RGtk2 should make the last instruction more obvious)

If yes to all those questions, then please check if GTK+ is really in your PATH. Michael
