On Linux, the Gio-2.0 typelib is implemented by libgio-2.0.so.0:

$ gi-inspect-typelib --typelib-version 2.0 --print-shlibs Gio
shlib: libgio-2.0.so.0

and it depends on GObject-2.0, GLib-2.0 and GModule-2.0:

$ gi-inspect-typelib --typelib-version 2.0 --print-typelibs Gio
typelib: GObject-2.0
typelib: GLib-2.0
typelib: GModule-2.0
