[This is a canned response, please forgive the broken formatting: it's one of the many things Gna! unfortunately does not do well.]

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 Fixed long ago, but was still classified as Open. Github does not distinguish between Fixed+Open and Fixed+Closed in the
way we once did here, so this bug is now being marked Closed, and will not be migrated into the github issues tracker.

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:

Thanks for the report. Should be fixed with https://gitorious.org/mypaint/mypaint/commit/77370fdcc91e01f8c0100c9221d7193c504bf456 - please retest and reopen if it's still failing.

Save for me /is/ saving, but it still throws up the same exception even though it is.

Launch mypaint, press F2. Instead of saving, it will throw the exception:

It seems that gio.File is no longer way to go. Here, for example,


people suggest use gio.file_new_for_path instead of gio.File(indeed, it does work)
