Gromit-MPX Lets You Draw Anywhere On Linux Desktop Screen

A very nice Linux tool.  I think it might already be found on your Distro Repository.

This is an Amateur Radio guy's, YouTube video about it. Also see Kevin's list, below the YouTube video about the various ways to get the program.

"Old Tech Guy". But he doesn't look like Buster! ;D

Thanks for the info, Bill. I just installed it on MX Linux and it works great. Note, be careful to install 'gromit-mvp' if you use synaptic or 'sudo apt install' like real men (or women). You can install 'gromit' but that doesn't seem to do anything even when clicking on the menu item. Maybe it's only for the terminal?

Forgot to mention it was in the repository for me. MX Linux is based on Debian and I believe that Debian still has the largest depository. I used the terminal to install it.
