Hi everyone,
In Google there were nothing that solve this, so i ask here.
as the topic says, i have a problem with starting some programs. For example pidgin, synaptic, inkscape and gimp. The first three give the follow Errormessage in a shell:

symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_add_idle

with gimp i get this:

gimp: symbol lookup error: gimp: undefined symbol: pango_version_check
I am using Kubuntu 9.04. It worked before, but i tryed to compile and install gtk and pango (at gtk i failed with make, but pango was successfull installed). I think thats the problem.


Thanks for help :)

Correct! I suddenly had a failing xsane plugin in gimp. Running xsane at the terminal gave me the same symbol error described in this forum. Deleting an older version of libgobject (libgobject-2.0*) in /usr/local/lib and keeping the newer one in /usr/lib fixed this problem!

Definitely wanted to post this feedback as googling even part of:

"xsane: relocation error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_object_compat_control"

..brought up only FOUR pages, this one being one of them. Thanks!

Hope it helps :)
