What works

Brushes, tools, sound (there is a small chance that sound might not work if using play on linux, SEE WHAT DOESN'T WORK TO KNOW MORE) most of the features works fine out of the box.

What does not

  1. Sound might not work if you use play on linux: It seems like the wine driver recognition have problems with the linux sound driver (I still haven't found a workaround for this)
  2. Brush doesn't have pressure sensitivity, but the icon to enable pressure still appears, using this feature lags the brush (tested with a Wacom Intuos Art Pen & Touch Medium)
  3. Using the text tool makes the keyboard shortcuts stop working (same happens with the normal version), you can still use the other tools by pressing on them, but this time alt+tab didn't worked for me to fix this issue


I tried changing the sound drivers for both (wine and linux) to make sound work, but it refuses to work when using play on linux. Works fine with a wine prefix.
