LibPoppler and Inkscape problem

Asked by Daniel Zazen on 2015-02-22

I made today a fresh reinstall of kubuntu 14.10 and installed inkscape.
and when tried to run it from terminal it answers inmediatly:

inkscape: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpoppler-glib.so.8: undefined symbol: _ZN7GfxFont16getAlternateNameEPKc

and closes.
Googled it and nothing came up. Tried reinstalling glib (sudo apt-get install --reinstall libglib2.0-0 ) inkscape and libpoppler (sudo apt-get install --reinstall libpoppler-glib8); nothing changed.

Any ideas?

Found one solution hidden in: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=768475

Long story short: just 'sudo apt-get install libpoppler46'
Fixed the problem.
