A suggestion compile a slackware package
and or re post how you want it compiled correctly I'll happily compile it on slackware
since the new woof format allows for slackware.tgz

I have precompiled Slackware packages of mtPaint 3.30 on Sourceforge (naturally, since I'm running Slackware myself). But compiling mtPaint properly isn't hard to do - "./configure --prefix=/usr intl release" should be proper settings for Puppy (omit "intl" if you don't need internationalized version). The "release" switch does several things - it enables select optimizations which really do improve speed, tells linker not to add unneeded dependencies, and disables debug code GTK+ would otherwise add. Overall, this makes the executable smaller, faster, and more portable. The target architecture is chosen to be i386, because later architectures just increase the binary size without any noticeable improvement in performance.

I can quickly make it a pet and upload it to puppylinux.ca
and I include the docs since they are usually small anyway

If you can do this once I released version 3.31, it'll be greatly appreciated.

BTW, mtPaint 3.31 prerelease version source is here: http://mtpaint.sourceforge.net/temp/mtpaint-3.30.05.tar.bz2

UPDATED just patched and recompiled but the background was still black on the start up screen

Should not happen. Maybe the patch hadn't applied correctly? It needs to be applied from within the "src" subdirectory, or it won't find the file to patch.

I'll stick to the plan and leave it all original it compiled perfectly
without the patch * I will not add the patch to the official package that's your call *and yes you were correct the final mtpaint.bin was smaller
using your configure options Cool


and when 3.31 comes out I'll upload the pet Very Happy

wjaguar, thanks for the tip about the configuration options. I keep pretty up-to-date with mtapint and sometimes make packages available on my site, so it is good to have the heads-up from you on the options. I'll upload again soon and will put up a version with the patch as well. My site is full of 'example' builds of software which is packaged with my 'src2pkg' program, so the sources, patches and build scripts are always right there with any package.

There's a problem with the screenshot capture of mtPaint 3.30 / Puppy 4.2.

Bug reported by panzerpuppy:
Quote:
When capturing a desktop screenshot with mtPaint, the process doesn't terminate after closing the mtPaint window.
You'll have to end it manually with Pprocess.

Unless a step-by-step procedure of reproducing the problem is given, I can only answer thusly: "There aren't any problems with the screenshot capture of mtPaint (any version) / Slackware 12.1" Wink

Maybe it's something to do with the fact that it is run by a shell-wrapper (which gives a dialog telling you you have 10 seconds, then runs mtpaint).

Naturally, it is - but in which way precisely?
Without seeing the wrapper script itself, and the output of 'ps aux' with said problem present, it is useless even to guess.

I meant it's probably the shell-wrapper that's responsible.
I don't know if they changed it in 4.20, but it used to be an xmessage with a 8 sec. timeout running in the background, then sleep 10, then "exec mtpaint -s".
Could be the xmessage doesn't terminate properly or something (maybe they changed it to gtkdialog, which is known to have a problem with processes going on if you close it from the titlebar...
The output of ps is obviously what you need... (I don't seem to have that problem with 4.12)

Looks like the tcl shell script is the source of the problem,not mtPaint.

Code:
tclsh /usr/bin/mtpaintsnapshot.sh


The script executes mtPaint and takes a screenshot after a specified delay.
After editing the image and closing the window,the mtPaint process ends nicely. The tcl shell script remains as an active process (isn't terminated).
After making 100 screenshots with mtPaint,you get 100 instances of the shell script running in the background,wasting precious resources.

That's just grand... gotta love it when people complicate something and not do it properly.

Seconded.
From curiosity, I looked at this script - and here is what is wrong with it:

The silly thing is lacking any "exit" statements!

It needs three of them - one on the "Cancel" line, instead of "$win delete", and one after each "exec mtpaint -s".

And if I can see it immediately, without writing one line of Tcl in my whole life, then I wonder what the script's author was thinking... Sad

Thanks, Dmitry. I have added your fix to the Official Patches & Updates thread that is stickied at the top of Additional Software (Pups n Stuff) forum. Cool

The script developer had the right idea, in that he was offering a broader choice of options in a simpler package, but as with any community there is a wide variety of abilities and sometimes we fall victim to that. Embarassed Still I'd rather have 20 such problems, quickly resolved, than miss out on one really innovative approach that makes a big difference to the usability of our little distribution. After all, that's why we are so attached to mtPaint, isn't it? Wink
