I am sorry. There is a major change in liblarch and the needed code in GTG is not merged yet. Please, downgrade liblarch. Sorry for inconvenience.

I got hit by this one today, too. It would be a good idea to get the new liblarch removed from the gtg PPA.

I hit this today and it look me some time to figure out the right version of larch to revert to. The latest version that worked for me was 0.2.5.r134

Same problem for me.
Is liblarch used by any other programs (in order to know if i can downgrade without any risks) ?
(moreover, if liblarch is specific to gtg, then it's weird to have this dependency problem)

Ok, was unaware that liblarch is probably anyway only used by GTG.
So it's quite weird to have such a broken dependency in the PPA !

As a side note, after a few tries, the easiest thing to do right now in order to have GTG working again at this time :
- grab the sourcecode of liblarch from this commit (newer ones doesn't work) :
- uncompress it in /usr/share/liblarch/
- run GTG with something like "cd /usr/share/gtg/ ; ./gtg -l"
