I recently switched over from Windows to Linux and found it very difficult because I couldn’t find alternatives for softwares which I use the most. But now I have found alternatives for almost all softwares and I will be posting about them in a series of posts.
First of all, when I post How to guides, Images are very needful. I use MS pain to edit my screen shots, but in Linux I had GIMP, but it was too much for this simple requirement, so I searched for other alternatives for MS paint and found GNU Paint (gpaint).
GNU Paint is a easy to use MS Paint alternative for Linux. It does exactly what it is meant to do. It is easy to use and efficient to work with.
Installing GNU Paint in Ubuntu Linux
GNU paint is made available through Ubuntu repositories, so it is easy to install it using the apt-get command.
1. Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal
2. Enter the following command
sudo apt-get install gpaint
3. Enter your Root Password to continue with the installation.
4. When the Installation is over, you can find GNU Paint at Application > Graphics > GNU Paint
