This bug tracker will shortly be moving to Github. As part of this process, we are reviewing old bug reports on gna.org.

This bug was marked as "Ready for Test" or "Works for Me" some time ago, but was still classified as Open and no feedback has been submitted since then. I am therefore assuming that the problem has been fixed to everyone's satisfaction (or was't reproducible by anybody else).

If you believe that this bug still affects the most recent git master of MyPaint (and thus the next release), please feel free to open a new issue on
Github about it. Our new issue trackers are:

https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues
https://github.com/mypaint/libmypaint/issues

Hopefully fixed in https://gitorious.org/mypaint/mypaint/commit/d6b60511aaece4eafca524d483ae8ef70bb1cff9 - could someone confirm that this fixes it and doesn't reintroduce the problem seen with the earlier bugs? Thanks.

Regression on bug #14871 I think, probably introduced in bug #17940 comment4 but only really visible under Unity, or with the subsequently introduced canvasevent code, or with the combination of both.

Hopefully it's possible to go back to the old way of doing grabs without regressing on bug #17940 :)

Cannot reproduce in Xubuntu 12.10 (Xfce 4.10)

Cannot reproduce in Debian testing/Wheezy (Gnome 3.4), although the picker is broken in a different way there: see bug #20311

Another workaround: press the keyboard shortcut for it, which by default is "R".

Reproduced this under Unity on an up-to-date Ubuntu 12.10 under Virtualbox, but it doesn't happen every time. PPA version
1.0.0+git20121125.4bc72ec-1ppa1~quantal1

I cannot reproduce this in Xfce 4.8 under Debian testing, nor Xfce 4.8 under Ubuntu 11.10. This is probably a Unity problem.

It seems to be limited to the pointer button colour picker, which in this PPA build is bound to both <Control>Button1 and <Alt>Button1 by default. It doesn't seem to be happening on the same action accessed via the keyboard mapping (the R key by default), but that way of getting at it is broken too.

-------------------------------------

Symptom 1: colour picker does not continuously pick

Steps to reproduce

  • Start MyPaint. Point the mouse at the canvas area.
  • Hold down "R" and move the mouse
  • Release "R"

Expected behaviour:

  • Colour picker square and mouse cursor appear
  • While the mouse is moved with "R" held, square and brush colour updates continuously with the colour under the cursor
  • When the "R" key is released, square disappears and cursor changes back to the "brush circle"

Observed behaviour:

  • Colour picker square and mouse cursor appear [correct]
  • An initial update of the colour happens, but the colour in the queare and the brush coluur do not update continuously [incorrect]
  • When the "R" key is released, square disappears and cursor changes back to the "brush circle" [correct]

--------------------------------------------

Symptom 2: colour picker square does not disappear when launched with mouse button combination

Steps to reproduce

  • Start MyPaint. Point the mouse at the canvas area.
  • Hold down <Ctrl>Button1 and move the mouse
  • Release <Ctrl>Button1

Expected behaviour:

  • Colour picker square and mouse cursor appear
  • (picking happens: see expectations for symptom 1 but we're ignoring that here)
  • When the combination is released, square disappears and cursor changes back to the "brush circle"
  • Painting is now possible with the changed colour

Observed behaviour:

  • Colour picker square and mouse cursor appear [correct]
  • (picking happens, incorrectly: see observed for symptom 1 but we're ignoring that here)
  • When the combination is released, square does not disappear and cursor does not change back to the "brush circle" [incorrect]
  • Painting is now possible with the changed colour [correct]
  • Moving the pointer over the picker square exits the popup state [workaround]

Yet another quick addendum:
The color picker lockup disappears if you move the mouse over the picked color square. It is not a fix but something tells me the culprit is Ubuntu or Compiz but this workaround should help if anyone else has this problem.

Quick addendum:
Bug is non-existant on the same tablet pc when running Arch with Gnome-Shell 3.4.2

Not sure if it is something with Ubuntu patched GTK, Compiz or a conflict with one of the dependencies.

Getting the same issue. Tried two different computers, both with up-to-date ubuntu 12.04.

Tablet PC T4420, Fujitsu. 2.53ghz core2duo, 4 gb ram, intel 4500 gma.

The other is a tower pc with a quad core, core2duo gen. processor. 4gb ram, Radeon 4850.

Tried both the git and the repositories version of mypaint.
