[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:

I made a new compil/install of master following README on a clean system to be back testing around. I have error at opening Mypaint from my menu ( the .desktop entry point to "mypaint %f" , I tried to switch to "mypaint" but no success ). Also happen if I type 'mypaint' on any path in the terminal ( output pasted bellow ). Only place where it succeed ; if I type "mypaint" on the directory /home/deevad/sources/mypaint/ ( my build directory ).

Note : I deleted ~/.mypaint and ~/.config/mypaint to exclude issue coming from them and start with fresh pref.
