Default Something stopping Gimp loading

Something I have installed stops Gimp from loading - that is the little
Gimp picture flashes on the screen briefly and then the load aborts. I
can find no clue in /var/log/syslog and /var/log/kern.log so I have used
dpkg --purge to remove a number of programs to no avail. I have done a
number of apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade runs since I last used
Gimp. Although the upgrades were quite large I assume they are not the
problem since I have seen nothing on the list about this problem.


Any suggestions of what to try next would be most welcome.

Tom

Those logs only handle system process output, not user processes. You'll need
to run gimp in a terminal or check your ~/.xsession-errors for gimp's output.

Open a command window and run it from there. Hopefully some useful
error messages will appear.

Right. I opened a terminal window, tried to start Gimp, and got the
following message:

gimp: symbol lookup error: gimp: undefined symbol: g_dpgettext

That there is... a bug. But you probably figured that out.

Have you ever used "reportbug"?

This symbol is defined in libglib-2.0.so.0, which is part of the
libglib2.0-0 package. Something is wrong with this package on your
system, or you have a more general problem with your dynamic linker.
Please post the output of the following commands:

nm -D /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 | grep g_dpgettext

ls -l /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so*

dpkg -l libglib2.0* | awk '/^i/{print $1, $2}'

/sbin/ldconfig -pNX | grep libglib-2.0

OK, the symbol is defined.

Hmm, I have a /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so symlink (to the same *.1600.3
file) in addition to the one that your output shows.

That should have been "-pNX" there.

Please run the ldconfig command again with the correct syntax. I would
furthermore like to see the result of:

ldd `which gimp` | grep libglib-2.0

It looks like you have a copy of glib installed in /usr/local. I bet
that's your problem: moving it out of the way should fix things. You
may want to figure out why it's installed first, though, to avoid
breaking anything else in the process.
