Brushes just draw straight lines...

This didn't help...

Sluggish Brushes
This regression was introduced in CX 4.1. Brushes are sluggish to the point they don't draw smoothly. If you draw a circle, you get a straight line. One way to help is to turn off precise brushes. Edit -> Preferences -> Display & Cursors -> Paint Brushes -> Select the radio Standard. But this functionality is practically useless now - Joe

Any other suggestions?

I don't know what to tell you other than revert your current CXOffice to 3.x I reported this bug and they say they fixed this bug a long time ago, but apparently you see it and I see it. :(

I spent some time working with a user that was seeing this.

When he changed his kernel from a Gentoo specific 2.6.10 to
a vanilla 2.6.11, the problem vanished.

Photoshop is very sensitive to timing, and a kernel that doesn't
have 'normal' timing could well throw Wine off its game
(and make the brushes go awry).



Thanks, Jeremy. I'll try this, I've been holding off on the 2.6.11 kernel, but this gives me pause. :)

Ok, I've just tried Fedora Core 3 patched to latest as of Apr. 23, 2005 with kernel:

Linux rocketeer 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 #1 Thu Apr 7 19:23:49 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

And it has no affect on the brushes. It would seem as soon as I click down the brush, it won't read until I let go of the mouse button. It then draws straight lines. I can't use brushes or the lasso tool.

Can you tell me more about the CPU flavor? Dual/single?

It may be best to try to diagnose what's different with your
kernel/processor; would you mind coming to #crossover on irc
sometime? (I'm often there as user jwhite).



I'm running a vanilla kernel and I'm having the exact same problem. Is there any kind of a configure option I need to set to alleviate this issue?
