Well, the @krita devs seem to think that a generalised wallpaper function would be interesting. Let me see what I can do.

Whoa. Building was absolutely painless. I saw CMake files, did the usual thing, waited a few minutes, and WHOOP out popped a Krita.

Guess I can start reading its source code now.

OMG has the cutest build instructions. These are actually referenced from their official documentation as the canonical way to build it.

How to build Krita... for cats!

@JordiGH Those build instructions were the primary reason I started contributing.

I had over the years collected enough programming knowledge that I could read code and do debugging, but I had no idea how to build a program.

So when those instructions allowed me to build the program, and I came across a bug that really annoyed me, it was easy to go 'might at the least try debugging it'. And then @boudewijnrempt encouraged me to try make a fix and soon enough I made my first patch.

@Wolthera Haha, @boudewijnrempt encouraged me too yesterday in IRC.
