Pinta can be installed on Linux, Mac or Windows. Due to this, there are multiple ways to install Pinta based on what you are using as your operating system.
This document will show you the multiple ways to install Pinta.
Ubuntu Software Center
One of the easiest ways to install almost any application now-a-days in Ubuntu-based Linux distributions is to use the Ubuntu Software Center. However, since Pinta is not in the main Ubuntu repositories (aka PPA's), we must first install a repository PPA in order to download and install Pinta.
Although we are currently working on our own PPA so we can deliver the most up-to-date stable and development versions to you, there are others who have included Pinta on their own PPA's.
A small list of those PPA's are available here.
To include a repository on your system, simply copy the commands below, one line at a time, and paste them in a terminal and run them:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:moonlight-team/pinta/ubuntu
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/natty
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8/
Once you have installed one, or all, of the above PPA's, then you must update you system with their package lists. Run the following command:
sudo apt-get update
Once you have the PPA's setup and your system updated with their package list, now we can install Pinta via the Ubuntu Software Center:
- Launch the Ubuntu Software Center
- Search for "pinta"
- Click the 'Install' button to install Pinta.
- Once it is installed, navigate to Menu > Graphics > Pinta to use Pinta
