  1. This isn’t working for me on arch-linux, its using an old libpng, (1.2), it could either link against 1.6, or statically link for better portability.

      1. I’m still having problems with this in Ubuntu16.10. OpenToonz 161103 build. “error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0”

  2. Using OpenToonz 1.1.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 I can’t type any text (although I can copy/paste text into OpenToonz), but worse still is when I do File>New Level the software crashes.

          1. @Campbell: Tested latest changes with the appimage build, but the bug is still there. Natively compiled version works fine on the same host machine. This might be a problem with appimage build, but I am not sure. Investigating.

          2. re: @Campbell: Tested latest changes with the appimage build, but the bug is still there.

            Not sure then, I could redo the bug, and managed to stop it crashing on my system. Best report the error in the bug tracker.

          3. Yep. Can confirm that the File > New Level (raster level) causes the app to crash out even on 1.1.1-2016.09.29-64bit version.

        1. @Ronnie Keyboard bug is fixed now. Please download the updated version of package.

          @Campbell Thank you! We are testing the latest changes now. BTW, did libpng fix works for you?

    1. @igor This is absolutely very likely. ^__^ Still there are some issues in Linux build should be fixed before we will be able to integrate it into our production pipeline. We will work on that.

  3. the plastic tools for create mesh and after bones the opentonz crash existe a god way for not crashed for de bones in the plastic tools??

  4. Guys, thanks for the package. In the other hand, I got an Issue, there’s no audio scrubbing, if you got an idea of how could I make it work I would gladle aprreciate it, I’m using fedora 24. Thanks!

    1. Please get the latest version from the download location – although it have 1.1.1 in filename, it is real 1.1.2. This is because we forgot to change version number in our scripts. The next build will have correct version in filename. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to resolve sound issues yet.

  5. Hi guys, great effort. I’m testing your build on Ubuntu 14.04LTS, and I’m very impressed. The main issue I found is with the exporting, where parts animated with plastic tool are rendered incorrectly, with several positions superimposed on the same frame and background artifacts. parts animated with simple rotation or translation are rendered correctly.

  6. So excited for this. I just downloaded 1.1.2 on Linux and it’s pretty solid. The only real issue I’m having is that it seems to have issues communicating with my Intuos Pro. Doing things like right-clicking to navigate a menu of options, using the pinch tool, and shift-selecting to choose multiple levels don’t seem to work. They work fine using my mouse, but my tablet doesn’t register.

      1. I’ve figured out the issues with the tablet (user error). I have found a MAJOR issue, however. I get all sorts of problems trying to import .psd files that I create in Krita. Because Opentoonz doesn’t have much in the way of brushes, I prefer Krita to create my backgrounds and save them as .psd files. That way, I can play around with OpenToonz’s camera and parallax features. When I try to import them into OpenToonz, I get an error saying “Layer ID not exists.” I even tried loading a single layer at a time, which works, but the layers are different sizes and off-center. Please help!

    1. Hello Francesco! The build with MyPaint brushes feature is pretty much consistent with the latest commits in official version OpenToonz. We have temporary suspended regular nightly builds because currently it’s a bit hard to maintain both branches at the same time. We will be updating version with MyPaint feature manually according to the status of official version OpenToonz.

    1. Yes, this is a known problem and it is related with videocard driver. I have no antialiasing on Intel card (native OS drivers), but with the same build antialiasing works fine on other machine with NVidia card (proprietary driver). As our developer (Ivan) suggests, installing official Intel drivers from Intel website could solve the problem, but I didn’t tested that yet.

  7. I love this software but everytime I make a mesh with the plastic tool it crashes without warning.

        1. Ah, ok. That’s a surprise. ^__^ Please try to rename “~/.config/OpenToonz” directory to “~/.config/OpenToonz.bak” and check if that fixes Plastic Tool issue.

          1. Great suggestion, but it stills crashes when going from build skeleton to animate in the drop down mode menu.

          2. I am actually surprised you have this problem on Linux. I experienced this problem once on Windows machine and thought it was Windows-specific bug.

            Anyway, back to resolving. Please let me know the full filename of appimage you use. Also, I need to know a model of your videocard and if you are using proprietary drivers or native Linux ones.

          3. I am using an Nvidia Geforce9400. The driver is nvidia-340.102-ubuntu0.16.041. The app image is Opentoonz-1.1.3-mypaint-2017.06.15-linux-64bit.appimage. Should I give the 32-bit version a try?

          4. Unfortunately, 32bit version won’t work on 64bit Linux. I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue with my Intel videocard. Will try with Nvidia card in the studio today.

        2. I have tested with Nvidia card on studio workstation and still unable to reproduce the problem. My configuration is Nvidia GTX 560Ti, proprietary driver version 370.28. There are two possibilities here:
          1. Something in the user settings.
          2. Something wrong with driver.
          To check the possibility #1, please create a new linux user, login as this user and check if crash will happen.

  8. Hi, I have a problem with .wav . Scrubbing or render, I get a segmentation failure. Ubuntu Mate 1.18.0. Tested 1.1.3.9, 1.2.0.1, 1.2.0.2. On different laptops. What can I do ?

  9. Looks wonderful -though I was unable to set the path to work with ffmpeg on Debian 10. I tried /usr/bin which is where it is located on my system -no joy. I tried copying the library to my home folder -still no joy.

    1. I managed to get the mp4 fast render and other exports working by downloading the latest ffmpeg and compiling it inside the Morevna version of opentoonz, then directing the the preferences search string to that -then it worked like a dream. Great program.

  10. please, the link when clicked opens a new page where there’s written
    Page not found.

    The thing you were looking for doesn’t exist.
    on a firefox web browser, on ubuntu 18.04

  11. Just some Lib fix on the newer Ubuntu distros:
    If you get this error message:

    ./../bin/OpenToonz_1.2: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGLX_mesa.so.0:

    run it like this:
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxcb-dri3.so.0 ./OpenToonz-1.3.0-morevna-19.02.02-linux64-ac306.appimage

    and it will be fixed. Cheers

  12. hey! thanks for the great job.
    But i have an issue. No matter what solution I tried i never get opentoonz to recognize ffmpeg u-u I tried via snap but nothing and now with the appimage but is the same story. I have the ffmpeg installed and all, I don’t know what to do.
    I running it on kubuntu 18.04
    see ya.

    1. As I said before, in GNU / Linux the best option is to install the official from Flatpak.
      😉
