Tupi + Tooltip issue + Ubuntu

A long time ago, many people asked me to fix a really annoying bug specially popular in the Ubuntu default interface (Unity): the blank/empty tool-tips.

After a while, I found out that this bug is not related to Tupi directly, but to Qt and some Linux interfaces as Unity.

Today I was playing around with the "qtconfig" tool and finally I found a way to get the tool-tips back for Qt applications.

Here is the video, explaining the way to fix it:


Note: Take a look at the video description for details.

Tupi Mobile 1.0: First version for Android

As part of the development of Tupitu.be, a very first mobile application was born as a little fork of Tupi. This first release is just a basic vector graphic editor, but our goal is to keep working on its code until make it a vector animation environment for tablets.

Right now, the app is available in Google Play for free (as freedom), so if you are an Android user, go for it! :)

Tupitu.be : Call for testers!

After spending hundred of nights and every weekend of the last two years of my life, finally, the first version of Tupitu.be is ready for real users testing.

Tupitu.be is a collaboration platform focused on 2D graphics which is very integrated to the Tupi application, allowing users to post their images, storyboards and videos in a very easy way. Here, a little manual about how to do it.

Tupi 0.2 revision git02

Hello there!

Once again it's time for a new minor release of the experimental branch of Tupi.
Most of the changes are not related to the animation interface, but to the features related to a new platform I have been working on the last two years: Tupitu.be.

Wrong element at tupi.xml

/usr/share/mime/packages/tupi.xml:9: namespace error : Namespace prefix desktop on can-edit-with is not defined

Debugging issue (sudo related)

If program is crashing, then gdb works with sudo in code, but it's not correct:
1. if program is running in gui without console, then program is in waiting password, but no mechanism for input password.
2. if program is running in console, then program is in waiting password, but gdb works without sudo fine.
3. if sudo is not installed, then no info from gdb, but without sudo there is info from gdb.

Thoughts of #LGM13 and the future of Tupi

Hello there! :)

Well, where to start? After attending LGM 2013 my head is full of fresh ideas and a lot of new information. In fact, I could say that LGM changed the way I had been working on my project.
The chance to talk to so many high-profile developers is something that open your mind in a way you can't expect... and that's exactly what happened to me.
