MyPaint install errors

When I installed py27-numpy manually, MyPaint installed OK.

I'm happy to help but not sure how.  Contact me directly and let me know.

After install, I note that while MyPaint starts up OK, it doesn't work. 
ie. It won't paint anything.  I've been using it in a Linux VM and the
Macports version doesn't behave properly.

Other X-11 based programs like Inkscape work properly.

Thanks for your help.

> At the moment, strangely, you need to install py27-numpy, in addition to the py26-numpy. I've now fixed MyPaint to do this, so just wait 30 minutes, then "sudo port selfupdate" and "sudo port clean MyPaint" and try installing it again.
