Krita on Linux Unusable

This happens for me no matter the version I install, even older versions where this didn’t happen before.

Is this a problem on my end or what?

Hello and welcome to tbe forum :slight_smile:

If you used to have no problems with older versions and now you do, it sounds like a change of some kind in your system.
Have you updated your Linux Mint installation or installed a new graphics card/driver?

Have you tried running the 4.4.1 appimage?
Can you try that and post the content of Help -> Show system information for bug reports?

Can you try running with temporary fresh configuration files?
