How to Install Kxstitch 2.0, cross stitch software on Ubuntu 16.10, 16.04

   KXStitch is a program that lets you create cross stitch patterns and charts. Patterns can be created from scratch on a user defined size of grid, which can be enlarged or reduced in size as your pattern progresses. Alternatively you can import images from many graphics formats which will allow you to reduce the number of colors and to restrict the conversion to full stitches or optionally use fractional stitches. You may also use an image as a background. These imported images can then be modified using the supplied tools to produce your final design.

Kxstitch 2.0 Features:
  •     Creation of new patterns
  •     Editing of existing patterns – KXStitch is also capable of reading PC Stitch 5 files.
