I use a Linux Mint system on my workstation (Linux Mint 10 , equal to Ubuntu 10.10 maverick ). To install the same software I use ; all you will need is to copy and paste the lines of codes under into a terminal windows ( Ctrl + C here , and Ctrl + Maj + V in the terminal ). I advice you to do it line by line, and I hope everything will get installed "automagically" as it is for me.
update summer 2011: This works also in linuxmint 11 , equal almost to a Ubuntu 11.04 in gnome classic mode.

- Note A : For Alchemy, you can find a brillant article here about, thanks Red Bird
- Note B : I can't find a way to write a clean way of how to install Krita with less than 10 lines of codes ( in terminal , as above ). If some of you knows how to do it, please write it in the comments ; else you can check this thread on the Krita forum.
- Updates : I correct here and there littles errors, sorry if you tried it and it didn't worked, my fault ( err1 : typo in sudo "apt-add-repository" corrected / err2 : to update Mypaint, I forgot to enter in the folder Mypaint ; corrected ) .
- Updates 2 : another typo in gimp-plugin-registery corrected, sorry if you had the error of the missing package 'gimp-plugin-registery'.
