Random review:
“Tux Paint solved many of my problems in the classroom, especially the lack of materials, pigments, media cards, colored pencils, various brushes, etc. [We researched] the use of this educational software to develop expressive skills in children of 11 and 12 years in my workplace. The result was optimal. I am pleased to have Tux Paint as a partner in my field.” — A school in Peru, January 2012

Older Versions' Known Issues:

How do I tell what version I have? Tux Paint displays its version number at the bottom left corner of its splash screen. You can also run "tuxpaint -v" from a command-line terminal, check your Tux Paint installation's documentation pages, or tell from the name of the installation file you downloaded (e.g., "tuxpaint-X.Y.Z-win32.zip").

If you have problems you can contact us. Be sure to tell us what version of Tux Paint you're using, what operating system and OS version you're using (e.g., "Windows95" vs. "Mac OS X 10.4"), and where you got your copy of Tux Paint from (our website, some other website, a magazine CDROM, etc.).
