That's nice. But I'm not sure what your error was.
The lcl/gtk directory should be empty and AFAIK is not part of the search path. So, how can an unit be found there?
Also you mentioned, that you just copied gtk.pp. I guess you ment gtk.ppu.
What about the other files in the /usr/lib/fpc/1.0.6/units/linux/gtk/ directory?
Lazarus can't be compiled without them.

A lot of things. 
Do you like to help with the IDE (form editing, codetools, source editor, debugger, documentation), the LCL (components, images, docs) or the interfaces (components, images, docs)?
