Paint.mono - Paint.net for Linux
« on: March 22, 2012, 14:39 »
Most Windows users prefer the graphics editor Paint.net - an alternative to GIMP, which is too hard to use for some people. Linux users complained it is only available as Windows binaries, but there is a solution: It was ported (unofficially) from .NET to Mono.

About Mono:
Quote
Mono

An open source, cross-platform, implementation of C# and the CLR that is binary compatible with Microsoft.NET

So Installing should be pretty easy: Just install the Mono development packages and get the latest subversion of Paint.mono

Easiest way for Ubuntu users:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-get install mono-devel monodevelop mono-tools-gui mono-tools-devel subversion
Switch to the directory where you want to save the program.

Code: [Select]
$ svn co http://paint-mono.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src paint-mono
$ cd paint-mono
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

You can now simply start the program with
Code: [Select]
$ paintdotnet


Have fun  :excited:

I'm not using Linux, but Paint.net is a great tool and I'm glad that Linux Users can enjoy it too :)

I tried this a while back and couldn't get it to install properly :(
Maybe I'll try it again later...
