Rassam-paint is a free, basic painting application using GTK2 which comes with tools such as crop, rectangular and free hand selection modes, drawing tools such as pencil, brush, eraser, flood fill. Basic shapes like lines, ellipses and rectangles are also supported.

The program also allows you to zoom in or out, rotate and flip images, and enable or disable transparency.

Information displayed in the status bar includes the image size and cursor coordinates.

The only program I encountered was a freeze when trying to use the text tool, after getting a warning about data corruption.

Install Rassam-paint 1.1 in Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10 and Mint 17

DEB packages are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems, as well as pre-compiled binaries. To install Rassam-paint in Ubuntu or Mint you can download the DEB file for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) and either double click it or open a terminal and type the command below:

For 64-bit, download the DEB from here and to install it type:

sudo dpkg -i rassam-paint_1.0_amd64.deb

For 32-bit, download the DEB from here and to install it type:

sudo dpkg -i rassam-paint_1.0_i386.deb

The program will be installed as /usr/bin/rassam-paint.

The alternative would be to download the archive which contains the pre-compiled binary, then uncompress it, then run the program. The archive is decompressed in the current directory unless specified otherwise, with no root directory. The unzip package will need to be installed as well (sudo apt-get install unzip).

For 64-bit download the archive from here and type in a terminal:

unzip Rassam-paint_64bit_1.0.zip
./rassam-paint

For 32-bit download the archive from here and type in a terminal:

unzip Rassam-paint_32bit_1.0.zip
./rassam-paint
