I've not run it but I know it's on the MOTU's to do list - which is on
the wiki somewhere. I think it is based on an older version of the gimp
- and I'm not sure it's maintained anymore.
I have high expectations for Krita - it seems to be coming on in leaps
and bounds. I also love Inkscape - so I'm not saying it's all doom and
gloom by any means.
