Have you checked your php.ini to see if GD is being loaded?

If your phpinfo page (<? phpinfo(); ?>) doesn't show GD as being loaded then it's not actually in use. Remember that you have to restart your webserver to activate changes to your php configuration.

look at the apache modules, mine is at /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/20-gd.ini

; configuration for php GD module
; priority=20

Even if the module exists and is installed on the system, it is commented out on the module config. Uncomment it, then restart Apache, then you should be fine.
