It is possible to install the mypaint v1.1.0 application if the following instructions are
followed:

1) Install a fully working Python installation. Download is
available HERE. Note there are 4 pet package to be install Rolling Eyes

Check that you have a working installation by typing in console
Code:
python -V

The version should be shown in console ---> 2.7.8

2) To install mypaint app , 2 more pet package must be installed.

File: numpy-april64-1.9.1.pet
Size: 8.38 MB

(untick box to avoid downloader app)


File: mypaint-april64-1.1.0.pet
Size: 34.06 MB
http://www.datafilehost.com/d/06516675

______________________________________________________

Check to see if your installation is working by typing 'mypaint' in console.
If you see a warning message that mentions numpy then you haven't installed
the numpy pet.

When mypaint launches an errors window appears, but it can be
closed by clicking 'Close' button.


If a python programmer knows how to stop this window from appearing
contact me.

Sir, many thanks for putting this together.

I've managed to install this on Puppy Lighthouse 64, (with a few more dependencies). I've been trying forever to get this to work with Lighthouse. I thought I'd never see the day.

This will save me the trouble of migrating and dual booting all the time from now on.



I get the same Python error, but there where no issues during my test run.

I should download fatdog 700 and see if it works as well.
fatdog has the wacom X driver inside so there would be no trouble with
pressure sensitivity. Thanks for report.

Must point out - it didn't work the first time I installed your pets. I must have done something in between my first and second attempt to get it to work, but I can't remember what it was.

Having tried your pets on a fresh L64 without savefile, it also did not work.

I will investigate as to exactly what else needs to be done, and then I'll post a step-by-step here for Lighthouse 64 users.

There was an additional benefit: GIMP 2.8 can now export .ORA files, and I've got a bunch of plugins now working that never appeared before. This is probably due to your Python pet.

One side effect is that Playonlinux no longer works properly because of python issues, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

PostPosted: Mon 23 Mar 2015, 18:13    Post subject: Installing Mypaint on Lighthouse 64  

Turns out, that simply installing Don's pets will not work on Lighthouse 64 without a certain method. For some reason, LH64 is very fussy about how it is installed, and additional steps are required. So here's a simple step-by-step guide for LH64 users (this is also to enable .ORA file support with Gimp on LH64, which does not work by default):

First of all, if you have a saved file, take the precaution of backing it up before you follow this. I can't vouch for potential conflicts it might cause with python applications that I don't use, unfortunately.

Step 1: Upgrade LH64's default Gimp 2.8 to 2.8.14 by downloading the TXZ package from here:

http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/slackware64/xap/

It will install just by double clicking on it. This is important to get .ORA files working.

Step 2: Install this Slackware 64 fftw package:

http://pkgs.org/slackware-14.1/slackware-x86_64/fftw-3.3.3-x86_64-1.txz.html

I don't know if it's needed for .ORA files, but it is needed for G'MiC. Just to be on the safe side.

Step 3: If you have any Python packages installed, whether it be pets or other packages that LH64 supports, uninstall them.

Step 4: go to /usr/lib and delete the entire "python 2.7" directory. This is important.

Step 5: Download the Python 2.7.5 TXZ package from here:

http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/slackware64/d/

Then install it.

Step 6: Download all of Don's pets from the OP, and install them (except his python) in the exact order as shown here, starting with the numpy pet:



Mypaint should now work. You will still get an error message as reported in the OP, but it will still work after closing this message:



Please note that Don's Python is not needed, so leave it out. I have it installed on my own setup and it hasn't caused any bother, but everything works fine without it. I believe the Slackware Python 2.7.5 was a major culprit in getting it to work.

Additional notes: After you install the Gimp 2.8.14 Slackware 64 package, Gimp will disappear from the start menu. Don't worry, as it can still be launched from the terminal. You just need to add it back to the menu manually.
