This simple tutorial shows how to install the latest stable or development Pinta release in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr.

As you may know, Pinta is a free, open source drawing/editing program modeled after Paint.NET. Its goal is to provide users with a simple yet powerful way to draw and manipulate images on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Pinta is available in Ubuntu Software Center by default, but it’s a little old.

Install Pinta Stable:

Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open the terminal. When it opens, run the commands below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-stable

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install pinta

Previous commands will add the official Pinta Stable PPA and install the latest build (so far it’s version 1.4) in your system.

Install Pinta Development

Also open a terminal window and run the commands below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-daily

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install pinta

This will install Pinta 1.5 dev in your system from the Pinta Daily build PPA.
