Drawing in Linux is a pain to (most*) newbie users .
Sometimes, we just want to draw a simple circle in the picture and GIMP is found to be too complicated to be used.
If you are fine to be ms-slave, perhaps we can just run mspaint in Linux (Ubuntu 9.10) as well.
Running mspaint in Ubuntu 9.10 is not hard. All you need is:
- mspaint.exe (just google to get it)
- mfc42u.dll (just google to get it)
- and, wine (download-able with apt-get).
I have tested this with Ubuntu 9.10 and it can edit/save BMP images with no issue.
