Without this I am left guessing why it affects you and does not affect others.

One guess I have is, cairo is the culprit. You could experiment by copying all the cairo related DLLs from 2.8.2 and putting them onto 2.8.4 and see if you still the performance hit.


Well, i assumed you had read previously the report i made on your Gimp 2.8.4 release thread in which i gave the detail of what was wrong.

And indeed, it's cairo (at least on Win32), because as soon as i moved the libcairo-2.dll
from your ...\Gimp-2.8.2\bin\
into your ...\gimp-painter\bin\

suddenly no more atrociously slow brush, no more extreme cursor lag, it is -as fast and smooth- as your Gimp 2.8.2 was, even the MyPaint brushes are very fast and smooth.

Only problem then is the remaining problem steeno mentionned : the brushes can't be stopped.
But their behaviour is very close to the original MyPaint brushes, definitively potential in making Gimp not only a very good image editor, but a fantastic painting program in the same time.

Thanks for testing!

I sort of stopped looking at Gimp painter because Onkel already created another version.

I noticed that the brush could not be stopped as well. I don't know what the issue there is. Do you see the same issue with Onkel's version?

I just tried what i think is his version :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-pa ... kel_Hatti/

the win32 version of his gimp painter and i noticed that :
- it's affected by the same slow/laggy brushes and cursor, again cairo as it's fixed (and brushes/cursor are smooth and fast again) by replacing his libcairo-2.dll by your 2.8.2 libcairo-2.dll

- the Mypaint brush are not affected by the "brush are not stopping" problem of your build.

I have read that Onkel_Hatti wrote :

You have to consider, that the version of underlying gimp is 2.8.3, this is an unstable version.
The disadvantage of gimp-painter is, that it is based on an outdated version of gimp. I didn't
(and will not) analyse the code, but I think, there are massive changes to realize gimp-painter
(just think about the ability to turn the painting canvas)
As asked before, gimp-painter will not be taken by the gimp developer crew, because it does not
use gegl.


hinting that there are certainly problems between gimp painter and recent gimp code (could they be related to the brush not stopping in your own build ?)

No Partha Onkel's version does not have this problem with the MyPaint brush tool

could not get back to you earlier because my broadband link fizzed and it took them 2 days to fix

I do not know of any lag adj but the issue with the brush being on at all times after selecting the tool has left Partha's version unusable and I was hoping that partha would try another build as this does not happen in Hatti's build

Thanks for the port.
My problem with it is the way that bar behaves on the top that appears in one-window mode.
When you use the path tool or the colour picker, it gets wider and pushes all tools and the picture down, so the position I want to pick from moves away from the cursor position and lags a bit due to the movement and then it moves back up when a brush is picked. It doesn't lag if docks are hidden, however I cannot see an option to disable that one particular dock.
It should either be closable, or fixed in size or if it has to get thicker, just cover more of the drawing area but not move it.

Also, to trace a path or to make a selection from the path, it seems no longer possible from the reglar menu and only in the new top dock.

Maybe I missed the means of disabling that menu/dock, but I believe I checked all options and
