    [SOLVED]Looking for a tool to draw on screen/PDF documents


    Hey!
    I realize these forums are generally used for technical issues, but all else have failed so i come here.

    I'm currently reading an e-book with some exercises in it and some of the exercises require me to draw in the book.
    With an e-book that obviously presents an issue, and I'm in desperate need of a drawing tool that lets me draw directly on the screen.


    I am on linux mint 14 Cinnamon.

    I tried gromit, but it was way too buggy to use.
    I also read somewhere that compiz contains some sort of drawing feature, but i found no way to install compiz under Nadia with cinnamon.


    EDIT: I am now using Firefox' Screen Draw addon while opening the pdf in Firefox. This is a solution, but I have yet to find a working standalone screen draw application for linux mint nadia.

    Thanks a lot arespi, Okular works way better than the Firefox plugin. Exactly what i needed. I feel silly because I never thought to look for a pdf viewer with drawing functionality.

    Anyway for the purpose of the thread, if anyone knows about a tool that lets you draw on screen, anywhere you like, do share it with us.
