It opens but doesn't work

I downloaded the recent version of Krita, the program open just fine but literally nothing works.
I click in every part of the screen, on the top menu, on the icons, but nothing happens. Also, the Minimize, restore down and close bottom do not work as well. I have to close it through the Windows task manager.
I tried to reinstall it, but didn’t work.
Can you guys help me?

Wow, that’s strange…like it’s locked up… What kind of machine and tablet are you using?
That would be the place to start…
Sounds like windows, but ??

:slight_smile: Hello @Moises_Izaias and welcome to the forum!

What Windows are you using, 7, 8, 10?
Did you try to create a canvas first after launching Krita, or did you click around everywhere first? If the latter, Krita could possibly have been put into some sort of lock state or “stare”, through these actions. Although this would be unlikely, but it would not be impossible

After you start Krita, you should first create a canvas, then suddenly a lot of buttons become responsive. :slight_smile:

Which version of Krita did you download from where?
Are you painting with a mouse or with a graphics tablet and a stylus?
And what @kacart analogously asked you, what hardware do you use? Is it a PC, Laptop/Notebook or a Windows-Tablet?



I’m using Windows 10 64 bit, my table is a Wacom One and my pc specs are:
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G (no GPU, I use onboard graphics)
16 GB of Ram

I can’t create a canvas, the menu doesn’t open. I downloaded the latest version from the official website. The same problem was happening with the previous version I had on my pc, so when I reinstall it, I got the latest one.

Weirdly, it worked earlier today, but now the issue remains, and my mouse is stuck in the loading icon right after I open the program.

Can you look in C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Local for the files:
‘krita.log’, ‘krita-sysinfo.log’ and ‘kritacrash.log’.
Which ones are there and which ones are not there?

If ‘krita-sysinfo.log’ is there, please copy-paste its entire contents to a reply here.

For the other two, if they exist then they may be quite long so it would be better to make them available via a link to a file sharing service or website or pastebin.

Hey, there were 5 files there: “karboncalligraphyrc”; “krita”; “kritadisplayrc”; “kritarc” and “krita-sysinfo”.

And this is the content of “krita-sysinfo”:
