Gimp 2.8.2 Ubuntu crashes on Text
Thank you for taking a look at my question. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have Gimp 2.8.2 installed (Version: 2.8.2-1ubuntu0ppa2~precise). When I use the Text Tool in GImp, and try to change the Font, either via the left had side in the panel, or via the pop-up Gimp crashes. It crashes in 1 window mode, or not. It crashes in my account, and also in a guest account. It also crashes if I remove the scripts via the preferences menu. Here is what I get for an error message:

(gimp:14607): Pango-WARNING **: failed to create cairo scaled font, expect ugly output. the offending font is 'Agency FB Bold Condensed 16'

(gimp:14607): Pango-WARNING **: font_face status is: <unknown error status>

(gimp:14607): Pango-WARNING **: scaled_font status is: out of memory

(script-fu:14614): LibGimpBase-WARNING **: script-fu: gimp_wire_read(): error
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

This happens if I have text selected, or if there is no text written yet. No matter what font I try to select, it is an "offending" font.

Here are some other items:

ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ | grep gimp


Thank you.
