I'm also running the current version of Lion 10.7.2 (actually 10.7.2 server). The old version just crashes but Martin's test version works for me.

I've been keeping Martin Fuhrer (who ports Tux Paint to OS X) in the loop,
but he's not been replying, so I imagine he's busy.  Has anyone else out here
tried Tux Pant on OS X 10.7.2, and if so, have you had any luck?

The "test link" the parent is talking about is the build that Martin made

around some fontconfig-related issues on newer Macs.  It's posted over at

Thanks in advance!
