Description Ryder Klein 2017-06-17 15:11:17 UTC
Hello! First off, I'd like to apologize for the bad bug report and grammar and thank you for making this tool. When I try and run Pinta https://pinta-project.com/pintaproject/pinta/releases after installing Mono, it gives me this perplexing error:
The document “testfile.jpg” could not be opened. mono cannot open files in the “JPEG image” format.
The document “testfile.png” could not be opened. mono cannot open files in the “Portable Network Graphics image” format.
and so on, and so forth. I'm using the latest mono and Pinta, and it has never worked. I have pretty much no idea what I'm doing making this bug report, so again, sorry for a lack of detail. Thanks <3

Please report the bug to the app developers, they can look into it, and make a more comprehensive mono bug report if this is indeed a mono bug.
