This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Source whenever you create a picture or a graphic, you can upload them directly to your Deviantart account within those applications!.

Open your Terminal and enter the below command to install the all new Deviantart stash plugins for Gimp/Inkscape in Ubuntu 11.04 (should work for 10.10 and 10.04, etc as well).

     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/deviantart-plugins
     sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-dastash inkscape-extension-dastash

Once installed, you should be able to find them via (in Gimp): "Image" -> "Publish to" -> "deviantArt Stash".

You have to install the GIMP plugin by Martin Owens for this .

To install add the PPA ppa:doctormo/deviantart-plugins (here's how to do that) and install gimp-plugin-dastash from the software center.

To Run Just go to Image -> Publish To -> deviantArt Stash
