Bug Description

I've been letting my daughter play/paint with tuxpaint since about 3-4 years (she's 5+ now). I think there's a change in behaviour since the last release (12.10) in that now the pen up/down has changed to be a toggle instead of click while moving the pointer to paint, no paing when moving without pressing a mousebutton.

The thing is that I've just bought a wacom drawing tablet (pen+touch) and it works well, but it isn't usable when tuxpaint works like this. It's already horrible with a mouse, but with the tablet it becomes unworkable.

Krita is wonderful for tablet drawing, but that is just to complex an interface for kids (though I'd love a kids-friendly view on krita as an application, a bit like krita sketch), so I'm at a loss which alternatives exist for tuxpaint for my daughter and the tablet...

Cheers

Simon

Hi Simon

"usual mode" painting: click/holdclicked , drag to paint, release
"mouse-accessibility mode" painting: click/release to start painting, move to paint, click/release to stop painting

Maybe you are running tuxpaint in "mouse-accessibility mode"? or I have missunderstood your problem?

If you start a terminal window, what is the output of "tuxpaint --version"
Does starting "tuxpaint --mouse-accessibility=no" help in any way?

Thanks
Pere

Hi Pere,

I apologise for the confusion, I didn't notice I was using a version installed from source. When using the system version the problem is gone!

The bug can be closed

Cheers,

Simon
