Download - Stable Version 1.2.2 - 2004-12-12

Freeze Date: 2004-11-29
All KolourPaint Versions:      1.2.2 [Changes] | 1.2      1.0.2 | 1.0.1 | 1.0      Unstable

1.2.2 is an old version of KolourPaint and is only here for reference. Standalone releases of KolourPaint are no longer released on this website. Instead, you should use your UNIX distribution's package management application to download the latest version of KDE 3.5 (3.5.8, as of 2007-10-17). If you want to try something new but unstable, see KolourPaint in KDE 4.0.

The KolourPaint included in recent versions of KDE 3.5 has more bug fixes and features than any package offered on this website.

Nevertheless, the below Generic Linux/x86 + KDE3 Binary v3 can be quite handy since it still works on many systems, even though it hasn't been updated for a while.    [2006-03-24]

The Generic Linux/x86 + KDE3 Binary needs no installation nor root - just decompress & run. It works on most GNU/Linux/x86 distributions released after August 2002. Specifically, it requires: Linux/x86, KDE 3.x, Qt 3 (>= 3.0.5) with threading, X, glibc 2.2, gcc 3.2 ABI.

Linux/x86 + KDE 3 Binary v3 Warnings:

  • It does not consistently prompt you to save if you exit with unsaved changes (due to misfiring virtual methods) [Bug #115841].
  • It might not work "out of the box" in gcc 3.4/4.0-based distributions (released after mid 2004) e.g. Fedora Core 3 and 4. In such distributions, you must install the gcc 3.2 ABI compatibility libraries - look for a package named "compat-libstdc++33" or anything that provides "/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5". This limitation will be overcome in the future standalone releases.

Source code requires compilation with the Qt 3.x & KDE 3.x development libraries (preferably Qt 3.3 & KDE 3.3).
