    Default CinePaint crashes

    I am running 11_4, KDE4.7

    I loaded CinePaint cinepaint-0.25-3.10.x86_64.rpm from the multimedia:color_management/openSUSE_11.4 repo.
    It opens, but crashes if I try to load a jpg for edit or try to create a new picture.

    Anyone figured this one out?
    Thanks

    i just installed the 32 bit version into openSUSE 11.4 32 bit (to see if
    i could duplicate your problem), and it also crashes...if you would
    please, log the bug i will add my details to it...begin here:

    seeing as cinepaint is so old and mostly unsupported
    It's current implementation is SO LIMITED .You must build your OWN tools and your own filters from scratch ( there is NO add on repo like there is with gimp)

    it is mostly useless for jpg gif,bmp,... images


    it does handle 16 bit unsigned tiff images

    so unless you need to use 128 bit cineon
    or do minor editing on a 16 bit tiff

    there is no reason to use it

    for "8 bit gray" and "24/32 bit RGB" Gimp is way way better

    it works just fine with 16 bit tiff's on suse 11.3 64 bit.

    I have been using "Film Gimp" ( now called CinePaint) since the very early alpha/beta testing days .

    Thanks for the comments JohnVV.

    I did try a .tif image, same crash result.

    I was just trying out various image editors, have no real need and agree that Gimp almost always gets the job done.
    I delete cinepaint and save the disk space

    Thanks, Malcom
    I already have MyPaint loaded from your repo, works well when I need it.

    Thanks for mentioning. Of course a bug report to the OBS project is more secure to get catched. I can confirm these exits. They seems to be associated to BadAtom Xorg events. My tests run almost under Compiz and KWin, so did not yet notice. But with twm they are visible. So using an other window manager might be a workaround until that gets finally fixed.

    A fix is the openSUSE repository. Please try cinepaint-0.25-4.1.x86_64.rpm from multimedia:color_management.

    Thanks - I reloaded and confirm it now opens a new file.
    On the road, more extensive play end of week.
