I just purchased ‘Illumination Software Creator’ to get a bit of a clue in with gui’s for $5. Personally $5 to me is pocket change, so I feel even if the software isn’t that great, it’s at least worth trying out and showing some love to the programmers for supporting linux in the first place.

If anyone else is interested there is a link here:
