Great, really was missing that!

Thanks, Mark

Thanks G2 and Mark - hope this gets into 1.0.5

I recently got a 3 button mouse (wheel mouse in fact) Using this I can zoom in and out of MtPaint. That is neat. My other favourite trick is making screenshots (from the Puppy menu - graphic processing / Mtpaint screenshot) and then resizing the box around a section - then pressing delete - now I just have that section.

Then I rescale by about 80% (image /scale canvas) before uploading to this forum for example . . .

Any other favourite tips anyone?

i uploaded a new dotpup which includes the language files and the mtpaint readme file
Portugese does not seem to work in Puppy

a 3 button mouse is a necessity for Linux
a wheel mouse is not essential but very convenient

if you have Icewm installed, you can press ctrl+alt+P
drag the mouse to select a rectangular area
then click Image, Crop
the picture will be the selected area

GuestToo,

The Portuguese translation is very partial at the moment - only about 10% complete - so it may appear not to work. If you select Portuguese in the Preferences, then restart mtPaint and press F1 to bring up the help you should see the tabs in Portuguese. (I hope!)

i should have read the documentation more carefully

one problem i have had with the last few versions of Mtpaint, is i couldn't compile it for 386's ... i compiled it for the default 586

(i don't know whether it makes much difference ... it might if it uses the mmx/sse coprocessor much ... otherwise, compiling for a 386 means it will run on more machines, and i suspect the binary would be smaller and faster than a binary compiled for a 686)

Targetting a 386 seems to cut the binary size on mtPaint. For example here are the binary sizes for the basic v.2.02 on my system (i.e. ./configure 386, ./configure, ./configure 686):

386 = 290k
586 = 298k
686 = 318k

What problems did you have compiling for 386?

d'oh
i was doing something something stupid like
./configure --cpu=386 gtk2 intl
why i don't know ... it compiled ok before because i used the 386 option correctly

the 386 version is about 4% smaller than the 586 version ... i guess i won't bother to re-upload the dotpup compiled for 386's ... but if anyone wants the 386 version, i can upload it

anyway, it was compiled using Puppy 1.0.5rc, with no problems
