Description HansHelm 2021-03-21 21:11:07 UTC
After successfully emerging mypaint I have trouble getting the package started.
It crashes immediately  with the following error window:

```python
Mypaint version: 2.0.1+gitexport.478280f
System information: Linux-5.4.97-gentoo-x86_64-Intel-R-_Core-TM-_i5-5200U_CPU_@_2.20GHz-with-glibc2.2.5
Using: Python 3.8.8, GTK 3.24.24, GdkPixbuf 2.42.2, Cairo 1.16.0, GLib 2.66.7
Traceback (most recent call last):
TypeError: Couldn't find foreign struct converter for 'cairo.Context'

```

Can you please provide:
1) emerge --info

2) emerge -pvO libmypaint mypaint mypaint-brushes

3) Run "mypaint" in a Terminal and copy/paste the full output into a text file?

If this is still happening.. does installing (emerge -v1 for now) dev-python/cairocffi help?
