What works

Everything seems to work, even file viewer works...This is a great great application for cg artists- maybe the best.

note to other poster:

In order to run paint tool sai english version, you must run sai.exe and NOT start-sai.exe,which will lead to an error message

Everything,but the most important...

What does not

 Tablet pressure sensitivity does not work.

For this kind of application,this is the one feature that is key to its use.

HowTo / Notes

Pen pressure

The pen pressure bug IS NOT a driver bug.
Krita works perfectly out of the box and it's using the drivers already shipped with the kernel.


Old SAI1 is ONLY 32-bit.
