I mainly refer to the warnings refering to "missing" libgthumb.so as you
have noticed below.

No, it is in /usr/lib/gthumb/libgthumb.so

Creating a symlink in /usr/lib does work:
$ ldd /usr/bin/gthumb | grep libgthumb
libgthumb.so => /usr/lib/libgthumb.so (0x00002b6e5c45a000)
That's what was done by the previous maintainer. I am not sure it is the
right thing to do.
What I don't understand is why it works for you and not for me.
Don't you have a ligthumb.so file remaining in /usr/lib from a previous

Again, I am not an expert but I wouldn't understand why.
The only particularity I am aware of is:
