    There are several suggestions on the page I linked. I'm sure one of those will be in your distro's repo.

    Have you tried installing from the tar file? They have instructions for that.

    My suggestion is to plow through the learning curve of GIMP since it's incredibly powerful once you get there. IMO it's well worth the effort.
