Error compiling GTK Accelerator (C programming)

I believe this may be a difference in GTK+-2.0 and GTK+-3.0. I followed this tutorial and ended up with this error:

# gcc -Wall -g mnemonics.c -o mnemonics `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-3.0` `pkg-config --libs gtk+-3.0`
mnemonics.c: In function ‘main':
mnemonics.c:44:61: error: ‘GDK_q' undeclared (first use in this function)
mnemonics.c:44:61: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in

I double-checked and I have all the correct header files installed in the correct locations.

Here is my code:
#include <gtk/gtk.h>

It looks like a typo on their part.

It's not defined as GDK_q, it's defined as GDK_Q

Did you mean to use GDK_KEY_q instead of GDK_q ?

gtk_widget_add_accelerator(quit, "activate", accel_group, GDK_q, GDK_CONTROL_MASK, GTK_ACCEL_VISIBLE);

This User Gave Thanks to Quintab For This Post:

GDK_KEY_q worked for me, GDK_Q did not. Perhaps its the difference in 2.0 vs 3.0? None the less, that was a very nice link Corona688 pointed to.

Thank you both!
