Synfig does not start

I am new to Synfig, I am trying to run it on Ubuntu 8.10. I installed it through the Synaptic Package Manager. When I attempt to start Synfig it exits immediately. So I ran “synfigstudio” in a terminal and it gives this [code]synfig studio – starting up application…

(synfigstudio:20360): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated

(synfigstudio:20360): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated
Segmentation fault

[/code] then it goes back to terminal prompt. How do I repair this :question:
