AZPAINTER FOR LINUX!!
« on: January 08, 2014, 05:55:25 AM »
Azpainter for Linux is out and it's azdrawing2 and azpainter2's beautiful lovechild:

I'm actually considering just moving to Linux now that it's out hehe;; :33


I've attempted to make a cygwin port (which went quite swimmingly /sarcasm)
If anyone's got more programming juju we'd all really appreciate it, here's a screenshot of the error I've had: http://i.imgur.com/BI4VpRn.png

Nice to hear!

hmmm... is't azpainter has native windows version?
by the way, what about mingw port instead (because .exe for cygwin depends on cygwin libs).

Oooh, you beat me to this update, Scribblezzz, ha ha! You don't know me, but nice to see you around again. (:

LOVE the new upgrades to both AzPainter and AzDrawing! Azel ended up releasing these early! You can also get the language adjusted to English. The only thing I've noticed is that the Linux versions do not recognize my Wacom's eraser end and just uses the default tool that was set to the pen. Guys know how to fix this or if there is a workaround? :c

I have to say, if you wanted to switch to Linux to complete digital art, now is a great time to do it. I'm using this combination now, and while I do like Windows and Mac alike and their offered programs,
Linux has also become far more capable in years in regards to this.

With AzDrawing and AzPainter in the mix now along side Gimp, Krita, MyPaint, Inkscape, Synfig, and Blender, you have a very robust and polished set of tools that work incredibly well! All of which open source and free.  :D

Restorer: Azel switched his operating to Ubuntu and does all his programming work there now. All of his latest releases have been made for Linux only, so, there are no Windows versions of his new revamped versions of AzDrawing and AzPainter. AzDrawing is now on 1.2 and AzPainter is now 1.0.0.

I'm dual-booting now, and it's the best decision I have ever made xD The only thing that bugs me about mint is that it feels a bit clunkier (even though I have to admit is very very pretty). I super love the filesystem though!! No more annoying program data in my documents! 

I do miss my games though. :C No freecell for me, haha

Anywho, I was here to inform you peeps that Azel updated Azpainter to 1.0.1! Looks like some bug fixes.

Hey guys, sorry for double posting. But great news! There's instructions for a mac AND windows port for azpainter! unfortunately, pen pressure doesn't work on windows. :C it works on mac though!! My googlefu is weak, so that was all I could find.

Windows port w/ cygwin (no pen pressure): [link]
Mac port: [link]

So I came across this post (and indeed the entire forum) a few weeks ago and it looked promising, but decided to wait and see if there were any more info about it, but no new info has been posted about since I checked last, so I figured I'd just ask:

I'm a Linux user, I'm interested in trying this stuff, but I'm not at all sure where to go, and how this software is compiled, I gather there's two types of software; azpainter and azdrawer, or is there a super-program that encompasses both of them?

Keep in mind I don't really know anything about any of this, so if anyone could give me a quick rundown of everything, where to get it, what is possible to do with it (them), etc. Just gimme all info you have, please =)

I'm a little late again, but thanks for giving us a heads up on the update to AzPainter! I'll have to download it. c:

Also, yay! You're using Linux! I admit though, as well regarded as Mint is, and rightly so, I'm not a huge fan of it. Kind of like you, I find it considerably slower than Windows and I don't like how the Linux Mint brand is stamped on everything. I've tried a large variety of distributions, but at the moment, my mainstay is Kubuntu. I'm having a couple minor issues with version 13.10, but the long stable release, 12.04 is very speedy and as you can imagine, stable. I like it considerably more than Mint. It's a very plain vanilla KDE distribution, but it's chock full of applications being based in Ubuntu and is very streamlined. By the way, if you are an artist, I recommend using either a KDE or GNOME based distribution because of the integrated replacement drivers they have for Wacom. Even though LXDE and XFCE are fast fast fast, you have manually code for the driver. Also, for freecell, I'm sure there is a version of it some where in the application center, lol!

Sorry for the double post, mods, but just want to chime in and say that AzPainter is on version 1.0.2 and AzDrawing on 1.3!  ;D

Anyway, I'll be more than happy to help you, Grifter! c: If it's not too much trouble, can you tell me which Linux distro you are using? I could provide some more specific information tailored to your distro if needed if you do this. c:

So, first things first! AzDrawing and AzPainter are two separate applications created by the author, AzSky. AzDrawing is black and white, 1 bit based drawing application for the purpose of making comics and smooth lineart whereas AzPainter is supposed to be like a smaller Paint Tool Sai like application which is essentially a small drawing and painting program that also has smooth painting, linearting, and airbrushing capabilities that use very small resources on your desktop. Both of these programs are now open source and free!

They originally were developed on Windows, but since the programmer changed his distro to Ubuntu, he decided to rebuild his applications in Linux. You can access both of these programs on his website here: http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA033749/linux/index.html

On the above page, after it's Google Translated, will tell you how to download and compile the program. If you are running a Ubuntu/Debian based distro (like Mint, the *buntu family, elementaryOS, Zorin, etc.), you can download the .deb files of the programs and unpack them like you would with an .exe or a .dmg file on Windows or Mac respectively. EDIT: Appears he removed the .deb files and you must compile all updates now! If your distro is Red Hat based, like Fedora, or any other kind of different base, you need to download the .tar.gz/.tar.bz2 file and then follow these compiling steps: http://www.howtogeek.com/105413/how-to-compile-and-install-from-source-on-ubuntu/ This is specifically for distros that use apt-get. Some are use yum or pac man and they have their own way of doing the same thing, and it's virtually very similar. He also has these instructions on his site!

Hopefully, this helps!

I LOVE IT!!!  ;D ;D

Somebody find the author of this software and shake his hand for bringing it to linux!

I can finally dump paint tool sai + wine combo for something that works natively without the glitches and is in some regards even better.
