Random review:
“I don't usually talk about or recommend software or IT things, but I would make this exception for the great drawing and painting programme for children (and the young at heart!) - Tuxpaint. Since I installed it on our ageing home iMac, my son Jacob has been really enjoying it” — Mark Lawrence, September 2006

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.).
