Tux Paint Stamps for Android (APK packages)

Note (March 30, 2023): Due to file permission changes in newer versions of Android, the Stamps packages may not work. We are investigating other ways to provide Stamps as separate packages from Tux Paint.

Tux Paint Stamps for Android comes as a set of packages that you install, launch, and then may uninstall. The main package, "tuxpaint-stamps-images.apk" installs the stamp artwork, descriptive text that appears on the screen, and sound effects. A set of other, optional packages are available which install descriptive spoken sounds in various languages.

Note: Currently, on multi-user Android systems, each user who wishes to use stamps in Tux Paint must install the stamps themselves, which will of course utilize more space on the device.
