|Short description=Drawing program for young children
|Full description=Tux Paint is a simple, easy-to-use drawing program for children ages 2 and up. It provides a fixed canvas size, one-click saving and thumbnail-based browsing and loading. Large icons, simple labels and prompts, and the ability to display only uppercase characters and disable features like printing, quitting, and certain prompts make it easy for very young children and the disabled. Tools include a paintbrush, lines, shapes, text too, a large eraser, a rubber stamp tool with dozens of pre-drawn and photographic images, and a collection of "magic" special effects tools. Multiple levels of undo and redo are available. A cartoon version of "Tux," the Linux penguin helps explain what's going on. Additional stamps, fonts and brushes can be added easily. Tux Paint has been translated into nearly 20 languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and British English.

TuxPaint

http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/tuxpaint/
Drawing program for young children

Tux Paint is a simple, easy-to-use drawing program for children ages 2 and up.

It provides a fixed canvas size, one-click saving and thumbnail-based browsing and loading. Large icons, simple labels and prompts, and the ability to display only uppercase characters and disable features like printing, quitting, and certain prompts make it easy for very young children and the disabled.

Tools include a paintbrush, lines, shapes, text too, a large eraser, a rubber stamp tool with dozens of pre-drawn and photographic images, and a collection of "magic" special effects tools. Multiple levels of undo and redo are available.

A cartoon version of "Tux," the Linux penguin helps explain what's going on. Additional stamps, fonts and brushes can be added easily.

Tux Paint has been translated into nearly 20 languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and British English.

Documentation

Documentation is provided for installing, configuring, and extending TuxPaint. Instructions provided for installation on all major operating systems, including GNU/Linux.
