PostPosted: Thu 29 Dec 2011, 13:36    Post_subject:  mtPaint 3.40 - Debian package for Lucid  

Proper debian versions for Lucid Precise and Tahr are located HERE


Here's the reason I first became interested in
putting together a debian package of mtpaint.
I installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx on my computer and looked
around for a debian package of mtpaint but all
I could find was version 3.31 .

There must be a reason why people are not upgrading
to a more recent version, but I don't know that reason.

I was able to get mtpaint 3.34.78 to work on Lucid Lynx
as well as Lucid Puppy 528 , but I didn't test printing
which is known to be difficult.

This is the first time that I've made a debian package but
it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Laughing

I would be interested in test reports, for instance
can it be used in more recent Ubuntu versions and
Debian linux?

The best feature in this version
of mtpaint is the dock which allows
layers to be used more effectively.

I included the locales for foreign language since
this is the common practice for debian packages.

Warning: Don't try this package on Slacko!
Get a proper pet package. (The reason is
a libtiff alias.)

Just curious. What about

 Host: Mariner Kernel: i686 (32 bit)
           Desktop Openbox Distro: Lighthouse Pup Linux
Linux [i686 arch]

which is Lighthouse

sh-3.00# cat /etc/puppyversion

which is slackbased also. Just wondering. I have MtPaint 3.31 installed in this. I guess I could look in gslapt. Just asking in case anybody else wonders don570.

Edit, Nope. Gslapt just shows 3.31 as latest in Lighthouse 431

I should have mentioned my pet package



By the way , this was compiled using libtiff.so.3
whereas Ubuntu Lucid Lynx requires libtiff.so.4

So I put an link in the package to fool Ubuntu
but Barry Kauler's distributions are confused by the
link I put in the package.

I'm running Racy Puppy from a multisession DVD. Just for fun I tried installing this Debian package. The installer said it worked, and that the Menu entry is in Utility, but when I found it it was in Graphics and nothing happened when I clicked on it. Maybe I needed to reboot to make it work, but I didn't particularly want to save it.

When I asked for people to try this package I meant that
I wanted people to try it on Debian versions of Linux,
such as Ubuntu Maverick etc. I only have Ubuntu Lucid at
home to test on.

The reason why it won't work on most puppies ( even though
it was compiled on Lighthouse 443) is because I put a link
named libtiff.so.3 that links to libtiff.so.4 which
is found in Ubuntu (and Lucid Puppy as well).

This link screws up your Puppy installation if you install it
in such Puppies as Slacko or Racy. Do an uninstall to fix the Puppy.

I know it wasn't for my Puppy, I just wanted to see what happened when I installed a Debian package.

No harm done, as my multisession Puppy runs entirely in RAM and I didn't save to the DVD when I shut down. Smile

version 3.40 debian version available from Dimitry

Dimitry has just made a debian version of mtpaint
(the first time???) Here's his message.

I made one too. :-)
This was created without using any Debian/Ubuntu specific tools, but
does install and work OK on Ubuntu Natty & Oneiric (not tested on
other versions; linked against libs from Natty).

Dymitry has renamed his manual available at his mtpaint website
to 3.40 so he must have changed something in it. I haven't had
time to read it yet. Embarassed
Frankly I've only seen a couple of new options.

I looked at the the manual and it has been changed quite a bit.
I need to sit down and read it again.
But arrowheads still aren't explained very well. Crying or Very sad
