This month the LinuxFocus team will be in Bordeaux, France at the Libre Software Meeting (LSM) . The LSM is from
4th to 8th of July. Perhaps we see each other there. The LinuxFocus session is

this year parallel to the "Linux Tag" in Germany. Next year the two
events will coordinate their time plans better and you will have a chance
to visit both.

name Linux. Perhaps we can start a collection.

Sometimes you need however an exactly straight line. Gimp can do that too.
All its "painting tools" such as pencil, airbrush etc... support straight
Click on the starting point of the line, press the shift key and then
click on the end point. Now you have an exactly straight line.
