Question #42608 on pidgin in ubuntu changed:

jpka posted a new comment:
I have same problem: pidgin not start, with same gtk error.
(it work fine many months before...).
'sudo mv .purple purple-old'  is fixes problem, but deletes my settings.
I find more useful solution, (re)move the 'icons' subfolder. Pidgin now functional, without settings loss.
