Linux?

Recommended Posts

I know there's no linux version of paint.net and none coming.  But has anyone tried installing and using paint.net under WINE in linux?  Is WINE a sufficient Windows environment for it to work?

Hello kraski -welcome to the forum and sorry for the late reply.

I'm afraid I don't have many answers here, not being a Linux user. However this thread for MACs may (or may not) be relevant?

If you do manage to get Pdn working on Linux with WINE it would be good if you could report back.

It looks like a rip-off to me. 

 

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.

 

I wonder if Rick knows about this?

The UI looks like a copy of Paint.NET to me.  The tools are in the same place and share many of the same icons.  Same with the four child windows.

From the project page on GitHub.

 

 

The license of 3.0 did not restrict the use of the icons in other projects (except for the Paint.NET icon).
