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.).


Did you know? Tux Paint is named after Tux the penguin, the mascot of the Linux operating system. "Tux" is short for tuxedo.
