@djelouze Yes, and that's how painting in Krita became quickly like a second nature to me. I had the luck to get a custom sized digital painting software shaped around my needs. A dream for many digital painters.

The goal was reached in 2012, In only 2 years. It was quick! I published a blog-post about it: davidrevoy.com/article114/krit

Yes, I remember ;) And it was definitely not a sarcastic toot: I am happy when free software are built upon professional needs

@dannotdaniel Hehe, yes, 💜 I was lucky to get all the development attention and guide the ideas at this time. That's why painting in Krita is so adapted to my needs.

Reading your setup guide (so nice btw. While I like super terse tech guides, I’ve done Linux off and on since ‘96:), so I’m not the target audience) I really hope that we’ll see some work to fix colors and tablets (and such).

I do know that open source is always tricky. Do you know if anyone is working on those things? Would be lovely if some of it could be generic so it could be used in any app/framework. Color is color :)

@yon Thank you. Yes, I know the contributors who are working on the various area of the three problems I mentioned (Wayland/Plasma6/Krita). They are working hard on this.

Unfortunately, about the generic/desktop agnostic idea, it's difficult by design. As far as I know, it's now up to any D.E. under Wayland to come with their implementation for color management and tablet.

I think so far, only gitlab.freedesktop.org/wlroots (for Sway) plays the modular strategy (from the README).

I wasn’t thinking of anything terribly grand. More like a library here and there that does the heavy lifting (interfacing with things and algorithms) and each DE then writes “the rest” if that makes sense.

I’m impressed by all the hard work and dedication to open source, even if I don’t always agree with the end result. I don’t feel I can complain per se.

Have you ever considered fund raising events and such around this? I’ve seen some streamers (for instance) do really well, and it would be fun to actually see and hear the people both putting in a lot of work making the software. But also those using it to its fullest potential.

Corporations don’t want to showcase the people who work on things (but rather the bosses), and it would be nice to see some open source people go from faceless source repos to people.

Or KDE and friends are already doing this and I’m clueless as always:) It’s the danger of suggesting things on the internet, so hard to know what everyone else do or do not know.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for sharing that post! I have never used Krita myself, but I enjoyed learning about its history. And I just love the conclusion:

And that was 25 years of working on something I started dabbling in because I wanted to draw a map for a fantasy novel on my laptop!


Dear Krita developer, I salute your dedication.
