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.

Windows users can download an early testing alpha version right now at this… , or you can get Krita, for free, right now on Linux (as well as all the latest news and improvements) at See what other Krita users are doing on our forums here:…
And here is our new Facebook page:…


Hi to all! :)

The new release of Krita (2.8) is coming in the next months with cool features and improvements. So we are looking for new splashes for it. Feel free to submit your proposals here:…

I really was starting to love this program, but what ever they are doing with their updates/changes really messed things up. I had to uninstal to try and fix it, and now it refuses to work no matter what version I try to use
Occasionally there might be problems with some left over settings file - if you're using Windows you can back this up and force Krita to create a fresh set by running this command from a command-line:
rename %APPDATA%\krita krita.bak

(If you're using Windows and the latest installer it should pop up with bug reporting tool now)
when i try to install i keep getting this message  "This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor."
Are you trying to install the 64-bit version of Krita on a 32-bit version of Windows? Sounds like that might be one cause for he message.
(the installer has "x64" in the filename, and Windows system properties would say "32-bit Operating system" for System Type)

It's sad, I can't seem to be able to install it on my Windows...I very much wish I could. This is a very lovely looking program and I'd love to use it.
im having the same problem
