problems setting up libgtk2.0-common via apt-get on debian unstable

Hi there.
This problem stopped me from successfully setting up
First the background: While trying to install pyslsk I
encountered various problems concerning program-versions
of gtk. AFter messing around with various libs such as pango
and glib for example I also had to reinstall libgtk2.0-common since
it seemed to be broken or something, don't know how the hell
I did that.
Well, running the command 'apt-get --reinstall install
libgtk2.0-common' at the first glance it seemed to work
properly, i.e. apt-get downloaded libgtk2.0-common
successfully, but when trying to set it up it gave this error:
'Updating the IM modules list for GTK+-2.2.0.../usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0: relocation error: /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0: undefined symbol: g_printf
dpkg: error processing libgtk2.0-common (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
Does anyone know what that undefined symbol is meant to be?
Hope you can help, since this problem seems to be quite rare
after searching the internet for soultions.
Yours, Felix

not sure i can help, never used deb or apt-get but those errors look familiar,

when you were playing with stuff did you move any of the header directories or definition directories? it almost looks like its missing an include during compile.

try just getting the source for the stuff and running the configure script that should find all the dependencies and update the make file.
