Installing Xara Xtreme

Xara Xtreme is one of several desktop graphics applications developed by Xara Group, a UK software developer. It was a Windows-only application until early 2006 when the code base was open-sourced, and work on the Linux port began.

Development (of the Linux port) has been somewhat slow, but the current stable release is a very easy to learn and easier to use desktop graphics software. The list of features is impressive, but not yet on par with the features of the Windows version. However, Xara Xtreme for Linux has been used to create some really good graphics

To install Xara Xtreme, use your package manager to search for xaralx. If you are using Debian, a Debian-compatible distro, or any distro that uses the apt-get package manager, you can install Xara Xtreme from the apt:foo package portal. Look for the xaralx link under the graphics category.

Whatever installation option you choose, you’ll end up with one of the most powerful graphics software available on any platform.
