    Great picture Nai! I try and I try but I can't make this effect look right, like yours.


    Hi Woodsy !

    First of all, congratulations for the rookie award winning.

    I have the same problem when I switched from Paint.NET 4.xx Windows to Paint.NET 3.5.11 in Linux. Some of the steps inside my own tutorial were no longer useful, so I have to be the rule-breaker.
    Can you send private message so that I can tackle and solve the issue ?

  2. (Excuse the foemat my pc is refreshing) Here is my story of megalo. OK, so I search how to make a roblox groip logox and megalo is the first result. My first run in with megalo, as im a kid, i checked it out, and i got megalo i was AMAZED at it, then, i STUPIDLY/smartly refreshed my computer, and do it another time because i got a paint sai virus, said free. thought it was a demo. (where is the real paint.sai?) Now, a day after, i get megalo not knowing of his wvil intentions... i see some animate thingy and search how to use it. first result was an admin saying it is a virus. I try to remove it but my computer gets weird. Now? it's refreshing. Probably done by now. Search "how to make roblox group logos" and spam that its a virus, please.


    Sai Paint Tool the illustration/painting software, you mean ?

  3. That issue does not appear for me.


    The Nik plugins launch a separate program to process the image, so that may be a rendering bug with its custom UI.

    It could also be a graphics driver issue, the OS being low on resources or any number of other things.


    Me too... It works perfectly on my Paint.NET 4.0.9 at Windows partition. My lappy GPU is ATI Radeon HD4200, so that's a factor. How about yours ? I believe Nvidia users also get benefits from Google Nik Plugins.


    BTW, I have problems to run PSFilterShim.exe while using PSFilter plugins on Paint.NET 3.5.11 at my Linux partition. I can't understand why. Each time I tried to run the plugin, I bumped to the same message from Wine.






    Any ideas and how to solve it ?

  4. For those who had installed Paint.NET via PlayOnLinux only...


    Is This 'Window 98-like' display appears too dull and not a happy ambient for you ?




    Simply installing Luna Theme, and you'll get an ambient that closer to the native surrounding in Windows.





    Open PlayOnLinux, choose Configure ( the one with gear icon )> Select the virtual drive where you installed Paint.NET.


    Choose Install Component and then choose Luna Theme.


    All the best !


  5. Why even bother with PlayOnLinux? Just use standard Wine commands to install paint.net.

    Because I failed to install Paint.NET with actual Wine. On both Linux Mint and Linux Lite. I need to install it as an admin or failed to continue the installations, each time, and I'm simply giving up.


    Now my issue was solved and hopefully my experience can help other people who migrated from Windows to Linux Lite.


    p/s :

    1. I can drag pictures directly to Paint.NET window in Linux Lite, which never happened when I was still with Linux Mint. As long as that picture isn't a high-res picture.


    2. With PlayOnLinux, we can install some softwares that were impossible to install at actual Wine ( for example MusicBee 2.5.5804 that been rated as thrash in WineHQ ). 

  6. Updates :


    I'm able to install Paint.NET 3.5.11, following dipstick's method after more than two failed attempts.

    The cause of failure : no python library was installed in previous installations of PlayOnLinux ( corrupted installations ). So please make sure that it's a complete installations of PlayOn Linux. Reinstalling PlayOnLinux if you failed to install Paint.NET.

  7. Recently someone PM'd me about how to install PDN v3.5.11 in Linux under Wine. I decided to post instructions here in case anyone else wanted to know.

    1) Install Wine. (get it from your distro's s/w repository)

    2) Install playon linux. (get it from your distro's s/w repository)

    3) Run Playon Linux and create a 32-bit XP virtual drive.

    4) Use Playon Linux to install “dotnet40” (DotNet 4.0) on that virtual drive.

    5) Use Playon Linux to install “gdiplus” on that virtual drive.  

    6) Use Playon Linux to install PDN 3.5.11 (It's the latest PDN version I can get running) on that virtual drive.

    That should create a PDN shortcut on your desktop that you can use to open PDN. You can also drag an image into the shortcut.

    Good luck.


    It works on Linux Mint 17.3 KDE 'Rosa', but failed in Linux Lite 3.0...
