Well Slackware current (to become Slackware 13 soon) has KDE 4 and 
KDE 4 apparently has Krita 2.0.  So who is to blame, the Scribus 
folks or the KDE folks?

Will Krita 1.6 run under KDE 4? I was unable to get KPDF to run 
under KDE 4 because of different library versions. I guess I have 
to try it and find out.
