MyPaint Beta on Windows 10

MyPaint WindowsI installed the MyPaint Beta for Windows from the MyPaint site and it went smoothly. It looks clean, it functions well, the brushes installed. You have to remember to download the brushes and then install them from within the programme under the brushes tab at the top. It doesn’t look as flash as the Linux version but it has a very convenient and clear layout. Installing the Wacom tablet was not as straightforward as usual. I had to search for drivers which would work because the first file I found on the Wacom site did nothing. There is a forum where you can download the pen drivers from LucieG45’s post and that version worked for me. I then downloaded the Bamboo Dock which is a very handy utility for the Wacom tablet. Now I am all set and ready to go on Windows 10 as well.

MyPaint on Linux Mint

Charlie Henson is like me. He doesn’t really know how to get the best out of paint apps and tools but he can see that MyPaint on Linux is in a league of its own. Like me, he found he could do things easily and could feel a sense of achievement. His video takes you on a good tour of MyPaint so that you can see what it does and find the online support easily. It is a programme which enables you to be artistic because it is intuitive. I downloaded it from the package manager on Linux Mint last night and was able to do things with it even though I was just using my mouse. I love the symmetry function.

This is my first effort.

I was amazed how much I could actually do. I have since watched people with some real skills using it. It’s a very comprehensive, but easy to use programme. I downloaded the extra data package from the package manager as well.

On my Wacom tablet

Today I spent time setting up my Wacom tablet on Linux so I could try that. I’ll explain what I did tomorrow. It isn’t as straight forward to set up a tablet on Linux as it is on Windows and Mac. It wasn’t that hard, though. Once I got my tablet round the right way (!) it functions really well and was very responsive. I can write almost normally on it and better than on Windows or my Mac. I could even do a little drawing. More proof that Linux Mint 17.2 is visually stunning.
