Tux Paint 0.9.24
(May 2020)

  • 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.
  • Windows
    No known issues
  • macOS / Mac OS X
    'Unidentified developer' error
    Recent versions of macOS have default security settings that prevent programs which were downloaded outside of Apple's "App Store" from being launched. Apple provides instructions here for installing and launching apps from "unidentified developers."
    No graphics on macOS Big Sur
    macOS Big Sur (11) was unable to run Tux Paint 0.9.24 from May 2020 correctly. A new version, 0.9.24a, was released in December 2020 which should work.
  • Linux
    No known issues
