could you post the errors before this?

This is the only error it is showing.
Even for the example project the only single line error.

ok..without the whole error log, its just like shooting in the dark..my guess would be applications you are trying to build are already running..kill them and build again..this has happened to many users earlier and might be in your case too..

do you have freetype and fontconfig libs installed?
Try (ubuntu, kubuntu):

sudo apt-get install libfreetype6
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
sudo apt-get install fontconfig
sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1
sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1-dev

Have you tried to clean/rebuild your application?Did the error show when you compiled it for the first time? Maybe if you backtrack your steps you can find out what is causing the error.
