I have tried GIMP and the tool I am looking for is not in it. I have looked into paint.mono but have no clue on how to install it. I just need an art program with a simple Curve tool, where draws a curve through specified multiple points.

This question may be helpful if you want to install PaintDotNet in Linux. –  Danatela Jul 15 '13 at 6:16
Are you actually looking for a Paint.NET alternative? I think you're looking for a vector editing application reading the question body. Paint is just bitmap based if I'm correct. –  gertvdijk Jul 15 '13 at 6:43
@FoxyRK9 You said GIMP doesn't have the tool you need. Will the paths tool not do what you want? –  Eliah Kagan Jul 15 '13 at 8:37
@Eliah, there is package called paintdotnet which was originally called paint-mono. And here is the instruction of how to install it on Linux. –  Danatela Jul 15 '13 at 9:57
@Danatela Cool! Will that provide a port of the latest version of Paint.NET? I'm guessing not, since recent versions of Paint.NET are no longer FOSS. Either way, it would be a big help if you were to post an answer about how to install it that way! The feature the OP is asking for is not confined to vector graphics editors like Inkscape, and even an old version of Paint.NET would probably be more suitable if the OP's needs primarily involve raster editing. –  Eliah Kagan Jul 15 '13 at 11:01
