I liked this application and wanted to put it back on the laptop. But it isn't in portage anymore. Has it disappeared or is it just not supported anymore?

That's why I couldn't find it back. What's the idea of keeping to rename things?

I think that Krita is not a photo editor anymore.

It' did not get renamed, it is just a part of calligra, the kde office suite. It uses calligra components, adds quite some features (tools), so they simply added it.
calligra is the official contiuation of koffice (got forked because of disagreeing devs).

Really wish I could build krita without calligra and it's mountain of KDE dependencies, it just really shouldn't be a part of calligra, it's much bigger than everything else calligra offers, and it sure is annoying to be required to build most of kde just to get access to a single program.

But well I found out that the way to install krita now is to set

Code:
CALLIGRA_FEATURES="krita"


in make.conf and then build it so that the other calligra apps won't be built.

Krita has become somewhat of a replacement for Corel Painter for Linux, it has really outgrown being part of an "office pack", especially since it's badly suited for image editing to begin with! (Better for digital art than editing it, although editing was it's initial design goal, to make a gimp that looked more like photoshop, someone somewhere decided rather than reinventing the wheel to make something new)

PS: Sorry for necrobump, but really wasn't worth making a new thread for this post.
