I found that problem. 

The Latest version of the Avant Window Manager (installed from the "deb 
http://ppa.launchpad.net/reacocard-awn/ubuntu hardy main" repo) BREAKS gimp 
2.4.5 in Hardy Heron 8.04.1.

You can easily verify that this is the problem.
1. Boot off the Hardy Heron 8.04.1 Live CD.

2. Add the repos:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/reacocard-awn/ubuntu hardy main

deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/reacocard-awn/ubuntu hardy main( See 
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=762363 )

3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator-bzr awn-core-applets-bzr 
5. Try to run gimp. It will not run. If you run gimp from the terminal, you 
will see the following error:
symbol lookup error: undefined symbol: gimp_micro_version
Now try to get gimp to run again. I can't!I tried to COMPLETELY uninstall the 
awn (using the instructions on the 



I even manually deleted the .gimp-2.4/ folder in my home directory.
Then deleted the AWN third party rep sources and reinstalled gimp. I
still see the error.
This bug is VERY annoying.  I would really like to get gimp running again. 
Any Ideas?Rob
