Description of the Problem, or Question?
MyPaint worked perfectly on this computer a few months ago, but now any attempt to save or export, in any format, to any location, produces a “Failed to write” error and does nothing. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the program twice from fresh downloads, to no effect. (I also tried the standalone version, but it won’t even run, throwing a “Cannot update location state file!” error, but I guess that’s another ticket.)
