For KDE your probably looking at Kivio, for GNOME I think the Dia.

If your doing any UML I would recommed Umbrello.

Is it ok if it was browser based or online visio alternative. I have tried Creately and it is platform independant. You should try and see.

When the information in the thread is 2 years old, I tend to look for fresh info. I saw that thread and disregarded it as necrotic.

I really really like Dia.

I have used it primarily to make troubleshooting flow-charts for training programs on both Windows and Linux and been most satisfied with the results.
