Also, Akaira is in development. It would a good alternative to all these. Also it is free and open sourced with a github repo. You should keep track of it as well to shift to it.

I've been eagerly awaiting Akira for a while, but it's very slow going and, last I checked, nowhere near ready for prime time.

Figma is the best UI-specific option for Linux right now and probably will be for a long time, but you can use Inkscape in a pinch - and as of v1.0, they have finally fixed it so that coordinates 0,0 are at top and left (like DOM and most other UIs are laid out) rather than bottom and left. You won't be able to easily grab CSS or use a plugin to convert to e.g. React components or React Native Stylesheet like in Figma, though.
