    GIMP 2.7.5 Compiling GTK+ Error

    Hey everybody,

    I've been in the process of compiling GIMP 2.7.5 on Ubuntu Precise 12.04 (Beta 1).

    So far I've only gotten to compiling most of the dependencies:
    babl-0.1.6
    gegl-0.1.8
    cairo-1.6.0
    GTK+-2.24.7

    During the 'make'ing process of GTK+ I get this error:
    /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../i386-linux-gnu/libpangocairo-1.0.so: undefined reference to 'cairo_show_text_glyphs'
    /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../i386-linux-gnu/libpangocairo-1.0.so: undefined reference to 'cairo_surface_has_show_text_glyphs'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    I've researched this for a while, and only found 1 thread that didn't offer a solution but apparently solved it. It seems to be a problem with the version of either Pango (v. 1.29.5) or Cairo(1.6.0)

    Can someone point me in the right direction as to what I should do? Thanks.

    School project files were created in this version of GIMP that I need to edit.

    To be honest, I'd be having a word with whoever created those school project files that demand a version of gimp that hasnt even reached debian unstable yet and ask them to be a bit more pragmatic but as far as your linking errors go...

    precise already has a higher version of cairo than 1.6, the error cairo_show_text_glyphs seems to reflect a change that occurred in 1.8 or so, precise uses 1.10. Use the system libraries for those parts, hopefully you've been using a local build chain against them and not overwritten the system libraries? (this is *always* a bad idea!) the gtk version you mention is also superceded in precise

    Okay, thanks for the information on that. I didn't use a local build but this is all being done in a virtual machine so I'll rollback all of these changes and try with the updated precise packages. I'll post back later today if I need more help.

    Thanks for all your guys' help.

    I finished compiling it with precises GTK+/Pango/Cairo and only built babl/gegl from source.
