I’m currently using Mypaint to illustrate comic books on an Asus Sonicmaster X540SA, 4GB, 64x laptop running Windows 10. As of the latest windows updates, I can no longer open my .ora files. I’ve been using Mypaint version 1.0 for a while now because it’s always worked perfectly with my Wacom Cintiq where other versions had buggy issues. It’s my absolute favorite and most dependable program to draw in. But I’ve tried each version of Mypaint I can find, and none allow me to open the .ora files. The files still open on other devices, so I know they aren’t corrupted. On Mypaint 1.0 I get an error message stating :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPaint\library.zip\gui\filehandling.py”, line 333, update_preview_cb(no details)
filename = filename.decode(‘utf-8’)
pixbuf = helpers.freedesktop_thumbnail(filename)
File “C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPaint\library.zip\lib\helpers.py”, line 168, freedesktop_thumbnail(no details)
# use the largest stored thumbnail that isn’t obsolete
pixbuf = gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file(fn)
if file_mtime == pixbuf.get_option(“tEXt::Thumb::MTime”):
GError: Failed to load image ‘C:\Users\rabid\AppData\Local\mypaint\thumbnails\large\a69cd6c55c6d7b8763c39c138c4a74a7.png’: Image has zero width
On the latest version, it just tells me the file is not a zip file.
How can I get this functioning again? Does anyone know what suddenly caused the problem? I have so much work in those .ora files. It would be awful if MyPaint stopped supporting them.
