Hello rullolex

It's going to be much better if you learn how to use mtpaint (if you plan to do simple editing). Or GIMP which is one of the most powerful editing software available in TC.

Inkscape is meant for Vector graphics (like flyers, logos and stuff) not for images or pictures taken by cameras (raster graphics).

Hi Rich,

I have downloaded mtpaint, following the readme file I had installed it. At the reboot mtpaint is not on the pc, I have to do the tcz extension?

I have installed gtk2 dev in order to install mtpaint but I have removed it because the keybord settings (it) do not work, it can be a problem to run mtpaint?

Thank you

Hi rullolex
... At the reboot mtpaint is not on the pc, I have to do the tcz extension? ...
All files and links to files in  /bin, /dev, /etc, /lib, /sbin, /tmp, /usr, /var  are in RAM and get recreated every time you boot.
The contents for those directories come from the  initrd (core.gz)  and  .tcz  extensions. So if you want it to persist, you
need to create an extension.

If you look over here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/src/mtpaint/

The  compile_mtpaint  file contains build notes.

If you want to apply the  mtPaint_gmodule.patch  file you will probably have to do it manually since the  configure  file
has changed since the patch was created. The affected line numbers are  692  and  693.

Add  squashfs-tools  to the  tce-load  command.
Change  giflib-dev  to  giflib7-dev  in the  tce-load  command.
After the  cd mtPaint  command do this:
Code: [Select]
export DESTDIR="$PWD/package"
After the  make install  command, do this:
Code: [Select]
mksquashfs $DESTDIR mtpaint.tcz
Create an  mtpaint.tcz.dep  file containing:
Code: [Select]
giflib7.tcz
freetype.tcz
lcms2.tcz
libpng.tcz
gtk1.tcz
libXext.tcz

Place  mtpaint.tcz  and  mtpaint.tcz.dep  in your  tce/optional  directory.
Load  mtpaint.tcz  and see if it works.

Hi Rich,

not easy but I'll try.

Ps.: I downloaded the latest mtpaint (3.50) (http://mtpaint.sourceforge.net/) I think it's the same procedure right?


Thank you

Hi rullolex
The  git clone https://github.com/wjaguar/mtPaint.git  command shown in the  compile_mtpaint  file fetches the source
files for you.

Hi Rich,

the only think is that I do not understand this

Change  giflib-dev  to  giflib7-dev  in the  tce-load  command.

If you’re thinking of submitting your finished extension, please use giflib7.

Hi Juanito,

I don't know how to do that (use giflib7).

I have only followed all the instructions given me.

Now I had downloaded the giflib7-dev I can retry.

Ps.: If I remove giflib works only giflib7 right?

Hi rullolex
The very first line in in the  compile_mtpaint  file is:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i git gtk1-dev giflib-dev lcms2-dev libpng-dev
My understanding is that you are using TC12 which has  giflib7  but not  giflib.  So that line now has to be:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -iw git gtk1-dev giflib7-dev lcms2-dev libpng-dev

yes I use TC12, so I think I do the correct tcz :)

yes I would submit  mtpaint

I found the extension_creation file and I'm reading it, I think I need some time to understand what I have to do but I will do it.
