The process for drawing a straight line in GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) is similar to the method in Adobe Photoshop.

In GIMP, select your preferred brush tool, click the point that begins your line, hold Shift, and drag your cursor to where you want the line to end. Click the endpoint, this creates a straight line between the two points with your selected brush. After the line is drawn, release Shift.
