Oh hey, cool, someone's actually using my installer.

As for what you're talking about, yes, I have noticed those issues as well.
I should probably note that this install is experimental. It doesn't crash, but the interface is not entirely usable either. Also, there is currently no tablet pressure support. (Or any tablet recognition whatsoever.)

To begin with, pretty much every icon on the bar is useless. This is how gtk quartz currently handles pop-up windows. I'm told that this issue will be fixed in the next version. (I will then repackage MyPaint with the new gtk version.) If you open one dialog up on accident, you can close it via "esc".

If you wish to modify your brush settings, for the time being, please use the "Brush List Editor", or "shift B". If you want to hide the entire toolbar (due to it being nigh useless, and the fact that it's new), simply chose "View - Toolbars - Menu Bar Only". Not a very nice solution, but it's the only one that works.

What package are you using? How did you install MyPaint? Do you use X11?

Been using My Paint for about 5 minutes. Tried using the Quick Brush palette (as denoted by the Giant Asterisk in the menu bar)

The palette doesn't respond well to control with mouse or pen. Tried to use the Radius slider, and it slid, by itself, very slowly, all the way to the left. I can't operate any of the other controls, AND the Quick Brush palette is stuck open.

No way to dismiss it..
