CinePaint Plans for 2014

What’s next for CinePaint

By Robin Rowe

SHEFFIELD, UK ( 2013/12/1 – I’ve been working on the development of a major online game server, nothing to do with CinePaint. My work life has been an astounding amount of crazy hours that were promised to ease up a year ago.

I still have big plans for CinePaint, plans I look forward to accomplishing in the coming year.

CinePaint’s build system complexity and UI bugs have long been our bane. First, I will merge the FLTK interface code from the experimental Glasgow branch with the existing codebase. That will cut down the overall complexity (less lines of code for the same functionality) and eliminate difficult to track down bugs in the legacy UI code. After that, I can get back to a frequent release tempo with support for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows platforms.

Building CinePaint on CentOS and Release 1.0-4

How-to for building CinePaint on CentOS O.S. from CVS or source tarball

By Robin Rowe

HOLLYWOOD, CA ( 2013/5/8 – Release 1.0-4 builds on CentOS/RHEL 6.4. Tarball and i686 rpm at SourceForge. I dropped the 1.3 and 1.2 releases because make rpm prefers 1.0-4 notation.

Here are notes on desktop CentOS operating system installation. Once we have that installed we will want to access SourceForge CVS. There are two ways to do that, anonymous and read-write (if you are a member of the CinePaint developer team).

Anonymous CVS

$ cvs login

$ cvs -z3 co -P cinepaint-project

Read-Write CVS

$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ cvs -z3 checkout cinepaint-project

SSH Identity Keys

Developers who don’t want to enter their password over and over whenever making a CVS change will need an identity key.

$ ssh-keygen -C your@email.address

This creates the files .identity and in your .ssh directory. If you use more than one computer, you’ll to copy these files to each one. Next, copy the pub file to SF.

$ scp .ssh/

Next, ssh to SF and rename file.

$ ssh -l username

$ mv .ssh/authorized_keys

Logout and ssh again. You shouldn’t be asked for a password.

Building CinePaint

Install necessary developer libraries first.

# yum install lcms-devel libtiff-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel openexr-devel fltk-devel gutenprint-devel libXmu-devel

$ cd cinepaint-project/cinepaint

$ sh

$ sh

Updating CentOS and RedHat support for CinePaint

HOLLYWOOD, CA ( 2013/3/26 – I’m back after two weeks in London. What a great city! I saw performances of Book of Mormon, Singin in the Rain, and went on tours of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and of the Benjamin Franklin House. I’ll be back in the UK in November to speak in Sheffield. Haven’t nailed down exactly when or what that talk will be yet, probably on game programming.

I got this note from a CinePaint fan:

Can someone put CinePaint to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for me? I had to migrate from Fedora 18 as it lost all usability. CinePaint can’t be found in any of the repositories. 

Yes, CinePaint is long overdue for an rpm update. I’m downloading CentOS 6.4 now to load into VMWare. Will have an update next week.

HOLLYWOOD, CA ( 2013/3/23 – Thank you to all who have sent me words of encouragement and CinePaint suggestions by email. I appreciate everyone who has continued to believe in CinePaint, who may consider Adobe Photoshop great, but can’t accept it as being the best possible tool for a production workflow.

CinePaint is special because (more…)
