I tried the linux binary you provided on ubuntu 14.04, but had a missing dependency I think, I got this error message.

./vpaint-linux-64bit: symbol lookup error: ./vpaint-linux-64bit: undefined symbol: _ZN15QGuiApplication13setWindowIconERK5QIcon

I built it on ubuntu 14.04 using the guide on your site and it worked fine, the binary is here if you want to check it:

On reddit people were discussing your amazing software if you want to chime in:

Someone even created an Arch linux build for AUR!

I managed to get the binary work in 14.04, but it was a bit annoying.

The issue is that the version of Qt in 14.04 is Qt 1.2, while you need Qt 5.4. Here is how to do it:

1. Install qt54base from this ppa:
https://launchpad.net/~beineri/+archive ... 541-trusty

2. Open a terminal, then run:
source /opt/qt54/bin/qt54-env.sh

3. In the same terminal, execute the vpaint binary.

This should work, but you have to do step 2 every time you want to run VPaint.... I know it's a bit anooying, I may make a script to automate it.

Cheers!

Ok thanks! That makes sense!

I also installed VPaint successfully on my tablet pc running arch linux from the AUR. However an unrelated question is I want to use the touch screen but dont know how to configure it to work properly to accept a touch as a left click? All I get is the cursor moving when I touch but no left click. Would be really nice to be able to draw animations with my fingers.

Cool, glad to hear it installed fine on your tablet! Yes drawing with the fingers would be great, I should look at that. But I did try on a Asus Zenbook with touch screen, on Ubuntu 14.04, and (quite surprisingly, I didn't plan for it), it did work there out of box, i.e. you could draw with the fingers.

I think it probably depends on what Qt supports, mostly.
