How To Install Krita Testing On Ubuntu And Derivative Systems

As you may know, Krita is an open-source image manipulation software, allowing the user to either create pictures from scratch or edit existing images. It is good because it supports most graphics tablets very well.

Krita is developed on two branches, the Krita Testing one which is the first to receive new features and the regular Krita branch, where the stable versions get added.

Recently, the developers have updated their Krita Testing branch, adding some fixes and new features.
