If you still have 2.0 or 2.2 there, you probably installed gtk+ separately, 
which could be in a pretty old version by now.  Could you try completely 
uninstalling the old GIMP and the old GTK+ libraries before installing the 
current version of GIMP?

Also other people might be able to help further if that error message mentions 
more details about where exactly the error occurs.
