pinta keeps craching
« on: March 23, 2019, 11:27:01 am »
Hello All
until now i am very satisfied with peppermint 9, but one thing i still don't have a solution
on windows i used photofilter free for simple adjustments.
like size, and putting some text onto it.
gimp is to much, and pinta seemed perfect, but it starts up, can load a picture but when i choose , for example, the text icoon, the program craches.

maybe someone can point me to a program like pinta that will work with peppermint, that would be a option to
hope someone has a solution

You could give Krita a try it's a bit more sophistocated than Pinta but not as big as Gimp it might be what you're looking for you'll find it in the repos

or in the terminal

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install krita 



Good luck

Pinta is basically a Windows app using MONO to work in Linux .. personally I'd find something more Linux native.

BUT

The version of Pinta in the repos appears to be 1.6 .. there is a 1.7 .deb in their 'daily' PPA here:
https://launchpad.net/~pinta-maintainers/+archive/ubuntu/pinta-daily/+files/pinta_1.7+r1055~ubuntu16.10.1_all.deb
which though it's specifically for 16.10, it appears to work properly in Peppermint 9



FYI, here's the URL for the PPA
https://launchpad.net/~pinta-maintainers/+archive/ubuntu/pinta-daily
but DO NOT add this PPA in the normal way, it contains no files for 18.04/bionic so will throw an error every time you attempt to run a system update .. just download the .deb from the first link in this post, and double click it to install.

I'm not having any problems with pinta.
What was I thinking?
