Sometimes latest versions of the software can cause issues when installed on older devices or devices running an older version of the operating system.

Software makers usually fix these issues but it can take them some time. What you can do in the meantime is to download and install an older version of Tux Paint 0.9.31.

What's new in this version:

More Magic, Fuzzy Erasers, Template creation:
- Four new Magic Tools have been added to Tux Paint: "Loops" and "Squiggles" draw precise and crinkly loop-the-loops, respectively; "Ribbon" paints a flowing ribbon that trails behind the cursor; and "Smooth" transforms freehand strokes into smoother ones.
- It is now possible to use an existing Tux Paint drawing as a template image, which may be used as the background of new drawings. From the "Open" dialog, choose the "Template" option, then find the newly-created template within the "New" dialog.
- The Eraser tool has gained a set of soft-edged shapes, which are useful for more subtly revealing a background template after drawing over it

Font Setting:
- Tux Paint offers a new option to customize the font used in its UI (button labels, pop-up dialog box text, and help text at the bottom), enabling users to choose fonts designed for literacy use, such as Andika or OpenDyslexic — or just something fun!
- Also, the default font used by Tux Paint now varys under certain locales, to improve legibility (e.g., DejaVu Sans for English and most other Latin languages, Baekmuk Gulim for Korean, Gen Jyuu Gothic for Japanese, Raghindi for Hindi, etc.)

Other Improvements:
- The "Erase" function — which is used to delete saved drawings via the "Open" dialog or exported templates via the "New" dialog — may be disabled via a new configuration setting
- The appearance of the buttons used to select the rainbow palette (HSV color picker) and color mixer has been improved
