I would like to port the xfce4-timer-plugin to gtk3.

I have never done this, in fact I have never done things with gtk (so I 

For this I have changed in the file the gtk version to:

XDT_CHECK_PACKAGE ([GTK], [gtk + -3.0], [3.18.9])

After I've tried compiling, first exxecute
This seems to work
I then execute
Which gives the following error:

warning: passing argument 1 of 'gtk_widget_get_realized' from 
incompatible pointer type [-Wincompatible-pointer-types]
G_return_if_fail (gtk_widget_get_realized (plug)); \

Can I compile the xfce4-timer-plugin with gtk3 in my ubuntu 16.04?
Is there any documentation on how to do this?

Thanks and apologies for being so new.
