How to install Deepin Draw 1.0 on Ubuntu 18.04

Today we are looking at how to install Deepin Draw on Ubuntu 18.04, Deepin basically any Debian based distro.  Deepin Draw has become one of my favorite apps in the Deepin family and draw/paint apps.

It is a bit odd as Deepin has not realized it yet, but it is already in the Arch AUR for a while, and all the source code has been available for nearly a year on Github.  So the good news even though it is not possible to just install Deepin Draw on Deepin yet, someone took the open source code and compiled it as a deb package.

The good news about deb packages is that you can extract it and see all the code and stuff inside it, for peace of mind!

I tried it out on Ubuntu 18.04 and Deepin 15.8 and it works great!  Enjoy!
