Install Krita on Linux Ubuntu using Appimage or Krita Lime PPA. Krita is an open source painting program for Linux Systems. Krita 3.3 is the last stable release in the Krita 3 series. This release contains several bug fixes and improvements:
- Fix an issue where it would not be possible to select certain blending modes when the current layer is grayscale but the image is rgb.
- Set the OS and platform when reporting a bug from within Krita on Windows.
- Make it possible to enter color values as percentage in the specific color selector
- Add OpenGL warnings and make ANGLE default on Intel GPUs
- Add an Invert button to the levels filter
- Implement loading and saving of styles for group layers to and from PSD
- Fix the erase mode not showing correctly when returning to the brush tool
- Save the visibility of individual assistants in .kra files
- Add an option to draw ruler tips as a power of 2
- Disable autoscroll on move and transform tools.
- Improve handling of native mouse events when using a pen and the Windows Ink API
- Fix the focal point for the pinch zoom gesture
- Fix loading netpbm files with comment.
Also, the Direct3d/Angle renderer is now the default for Intel users. Recent updates to the Intel display drivers have broken Krita on many more systems than before, so it’s better that everyone gets this workaround by default. If you experience decreased performance, you can always try to enable OpenGL again.
