Ubuntu is composed of many software packages, the vast majority of which are distributed under a free software license. The only exceptions are some proprietary hardware drivers.The main license used is the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) which, along with the GNU Lesser General Public License (GNU LGPL), explicitly declares that users are free to run, copy, distribute, study, change, develop and improve the software. On the other hand, there is also proprietary software available that can run on Ubuntu. Ubuntu focuses on usability, security and stability. The Ubiquity installer allows Ubuntu to be installed to the hard disk from within the Live CD environment, without the need for restarting the computer prior to installation. Ubuntu also emphasizes accessibility and internationalization to reach as many people as possible.

KolourPaint is a free, raster graphics editor by KDE

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

kolourpaintKolourPaint is a free, raster graphics editor by KDE, similar to Microsoft's Paint application before Windows 7, but has some additional features such as support for transparency.

It aims to be conceptually simple to understand, providing a level of functionality targeted towards the average user.

KolourPaint is designed for daily tasks such as:

    Painting: drawing diagrams and "finger painting"
    Image Manipulation: editing screenshots and photos; applying effects
    Icon Editing: drawing clipart and logos with transparency
In version K Desktop Environment 3.3, KolourPaint replaced KPaint as the standard simple painting application.

KolourPaint has a port to Microsoft Windows as part of the KDE on Windows initiative.
In the latest KDE release 4.7 kolourpaint got some important enhancements:


    Alpha Channel Transparency Support allows now to edit images not only with full transparent or full opaque pixels but also with semi-transparent pixels blending colors on top of each other (supported e.g. in the PNG file format)

    The tools "toolbar" is now a real KDE toolbar, allowing it to move around and dock it either horizontally or vertically as you like it.

    Taking a screenshot is now an integrated functionality and no longer requires an external application

    The source repository of kolourpaint was moved to the new KDE git infrastructure along with all the other KDE graphics applications
