Is there any way we can make a minimalistic cartoon avatar of our photo using softwares available for linux. On Windows it can be created using photoshop. But i don't know how to create the same using softwares available for linux. I know there are softwares like gimp available for this platform but I have a very little knowledge about them. p.s. if you dont know what a minimalistic cartoon avatar or vector avatar is you can find it on marques brownlee's profile (mkbhd) on YouTube.

apt-get -y install gimp and try it out! It's not very hard to make a "minimalistic cartoon avatar" in
gimp. I don't think there is a FOSS tool that just takes a photo
.jpg and spits out a "minimalistic cartoon avatar" automatically.
I personally suggest Krita. It's powerful, easy to use for beginners, and the interface will be somewhat familiar for Photoshop users. I strongly suggest getting the latest version via their download page, since it has numerous improvements over the versions available in the Ubuntu repositories. It's distributed in AppImage format too, so it's easy to remove if you decide you don't want it.
Also note that it is possible to install Photoshop on Linux by installing the
playonlinux package and using that. However, it's not likely to be as reliable as native software and you can't expect support if it doesn't work. (Source: myself; I've written several scripts for PlayOnLinux.)
