Here is Pinta, a clone of Paint.NET for Linux.

You will need the Mono RunTime PND for this to run (just put the PND in the usual place, and pinta will find and use it automatically)


Pinta is powerfull and complete painting software, with many options available. It can be compared to GIMP, but much easier to use.

Hum, it looks like there was already a Pinta released to the repo by @Eyescreate. I hadn't checked before publishing :(

Presumably his version includes the Mono runtime, judging the the relative sizes of the projects. I guess there's value having a standalone version as well as your version out there, plus yours is a year newer, including the updates since his version.

New Build. I noticed that the Shape Tools (circle, rectangle, etc) were not showing properly. It's an issue with the "invalidate" function that is picky, so I invalidate all the canvas instead of a dirty rect (I had to do the same on build 01 with the Brush Tool).

Also, I renamed the Appli to differenciate it from previous version from eyescreate.

Build 02

-----------

  • Fixed ShapeTool that wasn't refreshing correctly.
  • Fixed initial setup.

New update. Minor one, I have just improved the startup script, to not mount MonoRT if uneeded, and better unmounting of it at the end. No other change in the package.

Build 03

-----------

  • Improved startup script

It is a brilliant programme :) I have been using it daily for a number of weeks, mostly to edit in a few short words in Times font as to where and when the photo was taken. Splendid job! For me and for this purpose, far easier to use than GIMP and any other image manipulation programmes in the Repo. :) .

The only thing I miss is an in-built "delete image" function. I´d like to check out the PlugIns but I´m afraid there aren´t many : http://pintaproject.github.io/Pinta-Community-Addins/repository/All/

That´s ok though, I find it brilliant the way it is. Thank you, ptitSeb, for Pandora´ing it :)

Still use it almost every day; just one question: 3 out of 4 times, cutting and cropping does not really work, the cropped image is at best only a fraction of the marked field, and very often, when I undo this, up pops an error message which has words to the extent of "divided by zero" in it.
Is there an obvious reason for this, something which I might be doing wrong? :) Just asking.
I always have a big swapfile (Classic Pandora), Superzaxxon 1.70, which I think was current in 2014.
Anyway, this is my favorite graphic programme on the Pandora.
Just downloaded Pinta (vs. 1.6) for Windows either (http://pinta-project.com/), will see how this^^ "cropping-failure" behaves there, and report. :)

It may just be buggy. I have to refresh that app (and MonoRT and all other mono based pnd I have done too).

This would be nice of course but you really do not "have" to :)
Just mentioned it to see maybe someone else has noticed this, because this was the only really faulty thing, I´m afraid with Pinta 1.6 on Windows, cropping is no problem, I have just tried it out.
Pinta on Pandora (I mean this version without MonoRT in it) works wonderfully even with this little problem, I usually comment snapshot photos by editing a few words each onto a photo, must have done this well over a thousand times so far, and I have gotten used to start up piv or mtpaint each time I do crops:)

Thank you so much for this! I still use it almost daily, for inserting text into photos :) will try how the old "crop bug" and "even if crop worked, sometimes can no more save bug" are still around, and report if I notice anything :)
[doublepost=1468687734,1468686502][/doublepost]So sorry, still the same: approximately 3 out off 4 times when "cropping", it crashes with a verbose "divide by zero" error. But don´t worry. For inserting text into pics this is and stays easier tham GIMP and better than mtPaint. Thanks again for the update - it might also be my Pandora acting up, I can try Pinta on my other CC though if wanted. For what I need Pinta is perfect.

For reasons unknown to me... during the past two days since ^^that post, I have been using Pinta regularly: Crop has ALWAYS worked fine! Just had ONE crash in all the time and that was after ca. 5 undos and then save, I´m lost :) but no need for any action at all, pttiSeb :)
