  1. Linux is more popular on the desktop than macOS now - https://netmarketshare.com/ -> Desktop Trend (6.91%). NetMarketShare is a company which is sponsored by Microsoft, so I believe that their data is reliable enough. Taking statistics into account, what would be your response about Linux version of Affinity Photo and Designer?
  2. Hi there. I switched over two weeks ago from Adobe and I am stoked about the Publisher's feature to use all the functions in one place. Unfortunately, the clone and healing brush did never work. It always gives out the error message, I'd need to press ALT to find a source, which I am – of course – using properly. I tried different ALT keys and trying the same in Affinity Photo. It never works. I do not have Designer yet, but I feel it might be the same over there. edit: it shows the right symbol for catching the source though! I am using the latest versions. My setup is quite unusual
  3. Can I use Affinity Designer on Chrome OS or Linux? Actually I want to run it on a Chromebook, and you can very easily install Linux on it..so if Affinity Designer works on any of these OSes, I will be able to use it.
  4. Hi all, I would like to give my opinion on how I see the market. So considering Adobe does not have interest in the Linux market, you guys could at least take the opportunity and make a version of Affinity Photo for Linux, which would be a really nice alternative to Photoshop. I've tested and looked at a few Photoshop for Linux (mainly open source ones), but unfortunately none of them really stand that well. I've been using Photoshop since 2007 while I was in college, and I still use it at work, so it is really challenge to find out one to use at home that functionality wise, shortcuts, a
  5. I know that not a lot of people use Linux, but a lot of Linux users would love to see Linux support for affinity. Last mention that about Linux support for affinity was in 2014 and that's a looong time ago. Linux community is growing each year and is getting better. And if affinity would get linux support, more people will be using affinity because there are tons of people (that I talked to) on windows using adobe software, and the only thing holding them back is not much great graphical software for linux, GIMP and Inkscape are cool, but they are not good for everything. I personally love af
  6. And Why Affinity will gain on developing for Linux OK, so as I understand Serif needs a $500.000 mark to start developing the products for Linux. On my own personal time I already convinced many devs into buying Affinity and they never looked back into Adobe. However, most of us work on Linux/Ubunut or alike. Here's my proposal to you: - Make a PreOrder for the target of $500k - Reach the target, start develop - Deliver I pledge my self to place in preorder 2 licenses for Affinity Desiger and Affinity Photo, each! As developers we are not cheap, just s
  7. Do you have any plans to support Chromebooks? or linux (of the popular distros) or android os? (last I checked there were more android tablets than ios tablets [shrug]) many linux apps and many android apps will run on chrome so it could be a "several birds" kind of thing, possibly.
  8. (on Fedora 30, Affinity 1.6.5.135) Information I tried to run Affinity previously, but only got to the point of "VK_CHILD_WINDOW_RENDERING" not being implemented and after not using Affinity Photo for a long time to stay with Linux I got the following message on Discord: So I had to try it out and what can I say? It works flawlessly! Installation Download Affinity 1.6.5 from: "https://store.serif.com/de/update/windows/photo/1/" The following commands are required to install and use Affinity Photo (Run EVERYTHING in the same terminal instance). Open a
  9. Guys. Linux is the future. You may not see it at the moment, but you are trusting Apple way too much. What if your golden ecosystem breaks down? The thing is that I know lots of people who would be willing to purchase this software for even more than the original price if it was available for Linux. The Linux community is not cheap. If there is a quality product that is worth it, we're gonna buy it. And I'm pretty convinced Affinity is. When I read about it, I was super excited because as a young alternative to Illustrator, Sketch and Vectormator, there would be a chance of Affinity being
  10. I have read a lot of comments about Linux support, not all of them but a lot. I'm interested in what affinity staff think about Valves Proton and Steam as a distribution platform... Would working with the Proton team to get a version working on Linux still be out of the question? I mean, I'm sure most of the work would be with them, bundle it into Flatpak for Linux so it works on all of the different distros and use Steam for distribution of the software. Make it more expensive if you like, I wouldn't mind. I'm interested in your views on this as the risk in so minimal now,
  11. I fully understand the complexity of porting to Linux - you need to support various distros, and tech support could be challenging with so many variables - distroes, DEs, kernels, etc... I think that Ubuntu 20.04 LTS represents an excellent opportunity to create for an OS that will have a guaranteed 5 years of support, and which will form the base for distros such as Pop OS and Mint. It is not perfect, but likely an easier way to segue into the Linux World. But why would you want this on Linux? Or why would a user? Because, we want a stable, secure, high performing Affinity env
  12. Hi, I've made an attempt to run Affinity Designer on Linux via Wine. I managed to run the program myself, but it is not possible to create or edit a document. The problem is probably with Direct3D support in Wine or in my GPU (maybe drivers). I will describe how to install and run the Designer via Wine. Maybe someone can successfully create or edit a document (eg with a different GPU). The operating system used is Ubuntu 18.04. What we need? Windows (yes, I know) - it can be a virtual machine. It will be used to extract the installation of the program because the standard i
  13. Due to many reasons (MS can't update their software without issues, threat of having to pay monthly license fee for Windows 10, and I just plain like linux, it's faster (even my internet download speed has improved 120% in speed tests) + much more) I have switched over my desktop to Linux 100% of the time. Every program that I "needed" from Windows runs fine in Wine or has a linux version to use. Every program accept Affinity photo and Designer. I have tried the installation .exe which kills over immediately with a repetitive error "Exception: ResourceSection::ResourceSection". Copying the fil
  14. Affinity Design and Photo are perfect. They're the best photo and vector graphic editors I've ever used. I know this is probably a long shot, but having this software somehow ported to Linux would be the greatest thing imaginable. Right now I use Windows 10 in a virtual machine specifically for these two programs. I develop web applications with NodeJS, and Affinity Designer has become an indispensable part of my workflow. Just saying, I would gladly repurchase both programs if there was a Linux version! Thank you for reading and hope you consider this as a possibility down the road!
  15. Are there plans to release onto a more generic Linux platform ? Ubuntu / Mint / Debian for example...
  16. The short answer, no The longer answer, kinda The installer will run once you have .Net 4/4.5/4.7 installed in your Wine Prefix (used staging 3.13) and completes without any problems. Its starting it up that gets rough. The windows version of Affinity photo requires the Windows DWM for composition of the application screen and has some custom DLLs that dont seem to happy to hook into the WINE implementation of Windows. The DLLs just straight fail to load at all and while you can get it to attempt to run switching WINE to Windows 8/10 bypassing the Aero not enabled, the applicati
  17. I've read that there is no plan to develop a Linux version and I wonder why not? (I've seen that there was a post about this but the question "why?" never got answered. To be clear: I'm not asking for further speculation, I would like the answer to come from someone who actually knows.)
  18. Hi, I'm a graphic designer, using Affinity Designer on MacOS, however I'm planning to switch to Linux. Are you planning to offer a Linux version of your apps? With no Adobe presence on that sector it might be a good opportunity for Affinity and I guess it's not that complicated as MacOS is based on Unix? Best regards, Lukas
  19. Hi, is it correct there is no linux version yet? is this being worked on? i think most linux users will be very easily persuaded to get a license for this software so must be an awful lucrative business decision to make this happen.
  20. Hi, dear developers, do you plan to release your product for the Linux operating system? I'm sure the users of this system will be very grateful to you. And with ease will buy your product
  21. Hi, Has anyone had any success installing Photo on a Linux machine using Wine. I did manage to get FL Studio, a Windows music app, to run perfectly that way but have failed in a couple attempts to make Photo work. Its a very quirky process and requires different work arounds for different Window apps. Anybody tried Wine successfully? Perhaps the developers can help??????? Thanks Very New User Bob Solomon
  22. Has anyone successfully ran Affinity photo or designer in Linux (Wine)? Thanks Bob
  23. The main image editing program for Linux - GIMP - has a clumsy user interface. Why hasn't Affinity offered Serif for Linux? I prefer a native version without need for Wine or other means. The costs of your licenses seem very reasonable and my hunch is there are many Linux users who would purchase and use Serif. Eventually GIMP may get improved so the opportunity is now.
  24. Hi there! I am wondering if Linux support is coming sometime.
