Gimp 2.0 Error

When I try to run Gimp 2.0, I get this in the terminal:

gimp: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is there some dependancy I should have installed that I missed?

Thank you for any help

Have you only just installed it? If so type ldconfig
My install didn't load until I cached the shared libraries (or until you reboot)
