. It is in Japanese.
Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I perused all boards and didn't see a gimp-painter thread except for mac, and I am using kubuntu 9.10 - so I am making a new thread here.
I am firstly an artist and secondly a linux newbie. As an artist, I think the gimp-painter patch is fantastic, primarily because it gives me pressure-sensitive control over the minimum brush size. It also gives the mixbrush and G-pen, which are both useful to a smaller degree. However, it is only compatible with GIMP 2.6.7 and not 2.6.8. Also, the G-pen causes a segmentation fault under a very specific condition, probably a reason why the patch hasn't been included in the main software.
Question #1: The patch looks like it hasn't been updated for some time. I don't speak Japanese and I'm not sure how sourceforge works. How do I a) submit this bug to the developers of the patch? and/or b) request an update for GIMP 2.6.8?
Question #2: Does anyone know if there is an alternative to gimp-painter that provides extra control for pressure-sensitive brush size?
Thanks in advance and please let me know if I've forgotten anything or "done it wrong."
