How to install Krita 3.3.0 on Ubuntu Linux. Download Krita digital painting program on Linux Ubuntu Systems. Krita offers an end-to-end solution for creating digital art files from scratch. Krita is optimized for frequent, prolonged and focused use.
Explicitly supported fields of painting are illustrations, concept art, matte painting, textures, comics and animations. Developed together with users, Krita is an application that supports their actual needs and workflow. Krita supports open standards and interoperates with other application.
Changes in this release:
- Some visual glitches when using hi-dpi screens are fixed (remember: on Windows and Linux, you need to enable this in the settings dialog).
- If you create a new image from clipboard, the image will have a title
- Favorite blending modes and favorite brush presets are now loaded correctly on startup
- the plugin has been updated to the latest version for Windows and Linux.
- the configuration for setting the path to the plugin has been removed. Krita looks for the plugin in the folder where the krita executable is, and optionally inside a folder with a name that starts with ‘gmic’ next to the krita executable.
- there are several fixes for handling layers and communication between Krita and the plugin
- Some websites save jpeg images with a .png extension: that used to confuse Krita, but Krita now first looks inside the file to see what kind of file it really is.
- 16 and 32 bit floating point images are now converted to 16 bit integer when saving the images as PNG.
- It’s now possible to save the alpha channel to PNG images even if there are no (semi-) transparent pixels in the image
- When hardware accelerated display is disabled, the color picker mode of the brush tool showed a broken cursor; this has been fixed.
- The Reference Images docker now only starts loading images when it is visible, instead on Krita startup. Note: the reference images docker uses Qt’s imageio plugins to load images. If you are running on Linux, remove all Deepin desktop components. Deepin comes with severely broken qimageio plugins that will crash any Qt application that tries to display images.
- File layers now correctly reload on change again
- Add several new commandline options:
- –nosplash to start Krita without showing the splash screen
- –canvasonly to start Krita in canvas-only mode
- –fullscreen to start Krita full-screen
- –workspace Workspace to start Krita with the given workspace
- The Select All action now first clears the selection before selecting the entire image
- It is now possible to extend selections outside the canvas boundary
- Performance improvements: in several places superfluous reads from the settings were eliminated, which makes generating a layer thumbnail faster and improves painting if display acceleration is turned off.
- The smart number input boxes now use the current locale to follow desktop settings for numbers
- The system information dialog for bug reports is improved
