MyPaint depends on its brushstroke rendering library, libmypaint. If you have that installed, plus MyPaint's third party dependencies, you can try it out without installing:

git clone
cd mypaint
python demo

If the demo works, you can install

python managed_install
python managed_uninstall

For more details, see the Setup Instructions.
