This question already has an answer here:

I am looking for a lightweight image editor for linux (not gimp). I need only one simple feature, namely to draw straight lines (with adjustable thickness) over an image. It should be possible to move, resize and rotate the lines after drawing them.

You should try pinta Install pinta. It is pretty lightweight and it is quite rich in features.

Thanks. How can I move, resize and rotate lines after drawing them? – student Jan 29 '12 at 14:43
I don't think it can move or rotate links after drawing them yet. I answered before your update.. :/ – jokerdino Jan 29 '12 at 14:56

You should try shutter. You can draw straight lines, even if there is not on a picture took by shutter.

On my non-gnome ubuntu, it pulls in a bunch of libraries. I'd rather go with pinta – Ehtesh Choudhury Mar 26 '13 at 20:05
shutter depends on libgnome, but pinta depends on libmono, so I'd say it's a wash in terms of library dependencies... – beerbajay Jul 20 at 16:09
