What is an equivalent to MS Paint and MacPaint that works on Linux? There is a BSD-licenced one called Paintbrush that's great for Mac OS X, but I have not found one on Linux.

I hope it can be lightweight, i.e. few dependencies, don't need GNOME, KDE, etc., but anything is fine.

MyPaint is my favorite alternative to MSpaint.

Depending on what you're using this for, TuxPaint might fit the bill. It's designed for children and my kids find it fun to use.
