Tux Paint 0.9.25
If you are still using Tux Paint 0.9.24, please see that version's "Known Issues" list.
- All Versions (Global bugs)
- Tux Paint loads very slowly
The first time Tux Paint is launched (for a particular user), it may take a minute or more to respond. The font system used by Tux Paint (Pango) is creating a 'cache' of information about the fonts on your system. Subsequent launches of Tux Paint should be fast.
While the font cache is generated behind the scenes, Tux Paint should remain interactive (showing an animated 'please wait' animation) while this process runs.
No known issues
