Decent art program for lenux?

My computer is messed up and our other one runs on Ubuntu, so I've been using that.

Only problem is I don't have an art program. I was told that even if it was possible to run photoshop through a virtual box it wouldn't do really well.

So I need another program I can use to draw and paint/color. Freehand. That supports pressure sensitivity and stuff.

Google hasn't been very helpful, a most of the results don't look like they will do what I want.

I CAN'T STAND GIMP. I've tried it several times and I just can't get over the way it interacts with the tablet. I don't like the way it feels.

Any suggestions?

GIMP. It performs better on linux than it does on Windows. Make sure you update it to GIMP 2.8, and then check the settings.
MyPaint. (Note that the tablet is handled exactly the same way as it is in GIMP, and UI sucks. sudo apt-get install mypaint).

I debugged and fixed that piece of code for ya:
class Reply{
public static void main{
int sentences, context;
System.out.println(sentences>context);
}
}


Okay, let's run it:

root@black-citadel: javac Reply.java
root@black-citadel:java reply

false

I figure that means your argument is invalid;

You made zero sentences so far, and neither of your shit posts was "in context" of this thread. For the basic outline of your failure please refer to my previous comment and stare at it until you don't get the connection (or lack of thereof).
