My solution for Mobile digital-painting on GNU/Linux

Published on

Watch it on:

I just posted a new video with my solutions for mobile digital painting on GNU/Linux! It's not sponsored, about a refurbished 5 y/o hardware, and relatively low budget. 🙂

It's the Lenovo Yoga 370 (2017) and Wacom Bamboo ink plus stylus running on Fedora 38 KDE, talking about the obstacles, issues I met on my quest to find a device to paint on GNU/Linux, with only Free/Libre and Open-Source software.

David, what is your preferred configuration of Krita?

David, I look forward to your formal writeup on how you turned the Yoga 370 into a usable artist machine.

link David Revoy Author,

Hey, thanks and sorry for the delay. I'll try my best on the next days!

Thank you, David.
Believe it or not, I too am a Linux user and have been looking out for an affordable Linux touch screen device. The reMarkable looked pretty good but it has a subscription service for sync to their cloud and I just won't have it.
Then I read your post and made an order for a Yoga 370. These older machines are refurbished but are quite reasonably priced. It should arrive next week.
Question: I notice that you wear an artist's glove when making digital paintings. Is that to avoid palm rejection problems?

link David Revoy Author,

Oh the glove doesn't help with palm rejection; it's just because the season here is already hot and my palm sweat quickly. It doesn't glide well on a glass-like display. :)
