[Main] The current paging file maximum size is too low: 16383 MB (minimum: 16384 MB).
   Substance Painter can exceed virtual memory limits when doing a high resolution computation.

I'm on Linux and have a swap partition of 16G available on my system, but this error always shows up whenever I launch Painter.

Launching Painter in terminal gives me this:
Code: [Select]
libpng error: unexpected zlib return code
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
libpng error: unexpected end of LZ stream

Pls help look into this. Thanks and have a good day.

Well, the warning is explicit:
The current paging file maximum size is too low: 16383 MB (minimum: 16384 MB).

You are missing 1MB, so you are just below the limit that triggers the message.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.

Thanks. I think I misread the number.

Also there is a visual bug in Linux when closing a project without saving. Both the start and end of the "Closing without saving" phrase is clipped.

My desktop environment is Gnome, with a 4k monitor if that matters.
