thaks for the reply but i don't know what you mean.
In Windows i can use the three lines of code below and all works fine.
Why i cannot do the same in Mono ??
If this line 

Graphics g = Graphics.FromHwnd(IntPtr.Zero);

create a Graphics object why i cannot use the Draw methods for drawing 
inside it ??
Thanks again.

This method is defined basically to retrieve available information in the 
Graphics instance, not to do actual draw work on the screen (this could be 
accomplished by a different way, but it would be system specific, as nothing 
like that appears in the winforms api).

i'm using Graphics.FromHwnd(IntPtr.Zero) for drawing directly on screen but 
under Ubuntu 9.04 it don't work. 
The method don't return a null value but when i try to draw some object like 
a a line nothing happened like in this way:
            Graphics g = Graphics.FromHwnd(IntPtr.Zero);
            Point pMousePos = new Point(e.X, e.Y);
            g.DrawLine(p, pMousePos, lastPoint);
What am i wrong ??
Thanks in advance.
