Install Fuppes on Ubuntu Intrepid

Follow these instructions to install Fuppes on Ubuntu Intrepid! Fuppes – Blog-Foo

I recently revived my computer in a box so that I could create a digital media server to use with my PS3. Fuppes wouldn’t install properly until I found the above article.

The problem was that some key components for Fuppes to install were missing so I had to get the files from a hardy repository instead of intrepid.

Seashore for Mac is a good GIMP alternative

If you like the GIMP for image editing and have a Mac OS X machine, try Seashore. It does the same basic stuff that the GIMP does but in a Cocoa interface and only about 6MB (compared to 61MB for GIMP).

Seashore works decently and I like it because you don’t have to go through the X11 thing to emulate X windows. I used Seashore until I discovered Mac Paintbrush. Paintbrush is much faster and satisfies my rudimentary needs.

Just note — if you want to save stuff and preserve your layers, be sure to save it as GIMP .xcf format. I thought it might do layers for PNG but maybe only the old Macromedia Fireworks program can do that. I loved Fireworks.

Paintbrush for Mac - a solid MacPaint equivalent

Paintbrush for Mac is a nice graphics program just like mspaint on Windows.

Paint does this in a 2.7MB download. I’ve been dying to have a lightweight image program for my Mac (OS X Leopard). I’ve tried Seashore and GIMP but they are too heavy duty for my needs. All I want to do is take a screenshot and circle some stuff. Paint accomplishes this.
