Description of problem:
After recent update of GIMP I failed to launch it on GNOME menu.
The GIMP Message window opens and it contains following message:

FreeType version too old!

The GIMP requires FreeType version 2.1.7 or later.
Installed FreeType version is 2.1.5.

Somehow you or your software packager managed
to install The GIMP with an older FreeType version.

Please upgrade to FreeType version 2.1.7 or later.

I have following freetype packages installed (rpm -qa | grep freetype):
and I have flowwing gimp packages ()

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the Start button (red hat)
2. Select Graphics
3. Select The Gimp

Actual Results:  GIMP Message window appears. After a click on OK, it
dissapears, and 
the Gimp is never launched.

Expected Results:  The Gimp launches properly.

Perhaps you have some stray old version of freetype lying around... What does
the command "ldd /usr/bin/gimp-2.2" give?

Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2005-01-20 11:41:32 EST
Look at this:

libfreetype.so.6 => /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.so.6 (0x00ba3000)

--> you're not using the packaged version of freetype (but some older version
installed into /usr/local). Ensure that:

- either there is no mention of /usr/local/lib in /etc/ld.so.conf (or the files
in /etc/ld.so.conf.d)
- or /usr/lib is mentioned before /usr/local/lib
