What is Krita?

Krita is a free and open source, KDE program for sketching and painting, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters.

Fields of painting that Krita explicitly supports are concept art, creation of comics and textures for rendering.

Modelled on existing real-world painting materials and workflows, Krita supports creative working by getting out of the way and with snappy response.

You can download Krita for free (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at Krita.org: krita.org
The documentation is online at docs.krita.org and includes introduction guides and tutorials.
See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here: forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=…
And here is our new Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/Krita-F…

If you are having trouble uploading krita made images, check this link for a step-by-step for converting your image to a nice deviantart-ready png or jpg docs.krita.org/Saving_for_the_…

We only accept images that had Krita used in making them. When submitting images to this group, be sure to tag it with Krita or mention Krita in the description, so that we can verify that.

New 3.0.1.1 stable builds are out with important fixes. As well, unstable builds with all sorts of goodies!

Bugs go to bugs.kde.org.

We're also still accepting art-book entries:

Have fun!

Can you be more specific? Do you have trouble with the brush editor or installing new brushes?

Hai! I hope I can post here a little technical question.

I am working in Krita 3.0 on Linux Mint 18. The problem is that it Krita keeps being 3.0, even if it is few days after release of 3.0.1. I am taking it from repository, what shall provide auto updates if I am not wrong. As I've got it installed I would like not to need to download appimages and stuff, because even if the new version is probably lots of improvements, going for additional appimage in my case seems a pretty dumb solution to me. Can you let me know more please? :D

Hi
the krita devs are not providing the packages for all the linux distributions out there.
Usually they have their own package maintainers and they need to care about the packages. But you can create a bug report on the Bugtracer for Linux Mint and request that they update the package.

Alright, I see. Could you suggest me, where I could apply with such a report? I am pretty not experienced with such to be honest^^;

A pretty good way is to start here: launchpad.net/~kubuntu-members
Or join the Linux Mint IRC and ask your questions in their channel ##linuxmint on freenode irc. (yes you need that extra #)
There is also another way with ubuntus snappy + snapd uappexplorer.com/app/krita.kri… but I have no experience with that. I compile krita from source on Funtoo.

This would be your last option compile from source and install with checkinstall ob linux mint.
