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.
simple and nice tutorials. thanks
Hope it’s not too late to ask you something. Recently, I’ve installed Ubuntu on my computer. And now, I’m trying to find how to install Gthumb but it always seems to fail.
I have the GIMP application to edit photos, but I’m not a photo shopper so I don’t understand anything on it ;-p
Please can you give me the tip to install Gthumb.
Thanks in advance
Gthumb is available in Ubuntu main archive, just search for gthumb and install it via Ubuntu Software.
