Been tring to get krita to work Mint 17.1 Cinnamon but get error
"Essential application components could not be found.
This might be an installation issue.
Try restarting, running kbuildsycoca4.exe or reinstalling."


I have been using software manager tried to uninstall and reinstall still same thing. I need to do lots of graphics for wife's jewelry business and would love to try this out. is there a way to go through Terminal that may have better results? Any help will be appriciated greatly.

A quote from the Mint 17.1 Release Notes :
Issues with KDE apps
If you're experiencing issues with KDE apps (Okular, Gwenview, KStars..etc) run the following command:

Code: Select all

apt install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins
Note: These issues do not affect the KDE edition. A regression in KDE 4.14 prevents these applications from working fine out of the box outside of KDE.

Thanks, worked good for Krita 2.8.5 ..... but the icons don't show up.. is there something i'm doing wrong or maybe still missing a library?

I installed a bunch of kde apps and now Krita v2.8.5 works great!

I don't know which one(s) made everything work but here is what i remember installing:

kiconedit
agave
k-3d
meshlab

I confirm that installing kiconedit solves the icons issue.

so

Code: Select all

apt install kiconedit
i guess :)
