INTEL GRAPHICS CARD USERS: IF YOU SEE A BLACK OR BLANK WINDOW: UPDATE YOUR DRIVERS !
Many Linux distributions package the latest version of Krita. Sometimes you will have to enable an extra repository. Krita runs fine under on desktop: KDE, Gnome, LXDE -- even though it is a KDE SC application and needs the KDE libraries. You might also want to install the KDE systemsettings module and tweak the gui theme and fonts used, depending on your distributions
It does not matter which version of Ubuntu you use, Krita will run just fine. However, by default, only a very old version of Krita is available. The official Ubuntu packages are too outdated, please use our Krita Lime repositories supported by the developers instead.
For installing Krita from Lime repositories do the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dimula73/krita
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install krita-testing krita-testing-dbg
sudo apt-get install krita-2.9 krita-2.9-dbg
The most latest stable builds are available from KDE:Extra repo:
Or Leinir’s OBS repositories which have Krita built with support for Vc (which makes painting faster):

While it is certainly more difficult to compile Krita from source than it is to install from prebuilt packages, there are certain advantages that might make the effort worth it:
Of course, there are also disadvantages: when building from the current development source repository you also get all the unfinished features. It might mean less stability for a while, or things shown in the user interface that don't work. But in practice, there seldom is really bad instability, and if it is, it's easy for you to go back to a revision that does work.
So... If you want to start compiling from source, begin with the latest build instructions from the excellent illustrated guide by David Revoy.
There is more information and troubleshooting help on the Calligra wiki:
If you encounter any problems, or if you are new to compiling software, don't hesitate to contact the Krita developers. There are three main communication channels:
