A brief demo of it working in the youtube link above.

If you intent on trying this out, then it's important that you do not have any version of GIMP currently installed, otherwise you will get errors about mismatched libgimp libraries. Uninstalling a current GIMP will not solve this issue unfortunately. You can however have any GIMP SFS to coexist with GIMP Painter 2.8.

Download GIMP Painter 2.8 (32-bit) Ubuntu from here:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7Kaq1f0_RjhUTFTcW8wTDNUYVE/edit

After extracting, move it to your "/opt" directory. Then go into your Gimp 2.8 Painter's "bin" folder. The executable should be in there. Make sure the permissions are set to executable by right clicking the properties of it.

As stated above, you will get a libgimp error if you already have a GIMP installation, regardless of whether you uninstall it. I've read that removing every last trace of a GIMP installation will resolve this, but I'm not knowledgeable on how this is done in Puppy.

Thanks for info! There's a Windows version as well.

What we found most striking is the new graphical interface, including canvas rotation, new layout, but the most interesting is that now all brushes work with textures, the mixbrush is back with us (hidden inside the smudge tool) now his ability to paint and mix colors, can be controlled very precisely with new dynamic curves, finally, there is an experimental attempt to carry the MyPaint brushes into the gimp, but using textures.

Linux checks for libraries along paths.

They are found in /etc/ld.so.conf

If you install this app in /opt then I wonder if this configuration file
needs to be modified??

You'd need to add /opt/lib or whatever dir the app has its libs in to /etc/ld.so.conf and then run 'ldconfig' to have the library cache updated to find the libs.

I found the source code and compiled in Precise Puppy.

I found that it works in Precise Raring and Slacko

Here's how I compiled it.

Code:
./autogen.sh  --disable-gtk-doc  --prefix=/usr
