    I get an error:

    Pango version too old (micro mismatch)

    GIMP requires Pango version 1.29.4 or later.
    Installed Pango version is 1.29.3.

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

    Please upgrade to Pango version 1.29.4 or later.
