as the problem is still there I would propose following intermediate solution:
currently in the codebasis there is also an pdf import via
poppler-cairo. This one is disabled.
I would like to enable this as an additional pdf import possibility.
We have to decide later when it comes to the release which one to
integrate into the release.
so we can test in parallel the two options.
we have a big tester basis (compared to separate launchpad branch)
we get the possibility to switch to an tested poppler-internals
independent solution (while using poppler)
I there is no big NONO I will go forward and enable this within the next days.
attached the patch that is needed for this (tested on windows, should
work on Linux)
We are a group of five students from Finland, studying at University of
Oulu, Department of Information Processing Science. We are currently working
on a project assignment to offer help in usability development for an open
source software project of our choice.
Past few weeks we have been familiarizing ourselves with Inkscape and its
community and now we would like to offer our work resources for your use.
We have already figured out a few ideas of what we could do for the Inkscape
* Heuristic evaluation
* Usability testing
* Prioritization of usability related bugs on the buglist
To produce as useful results as possible, we would like to hear your ideas.
How do you feel about the tasks suggested? Is there some specific part of
the software we should focus on? Any ideas and feedback at this point would
be greatly appreciated.

Did anyone bump into this compile error - I was just trying do do a
clean compile of latest inkscape from bzr trunk.
color-profile.cpp: In static member function ‘static
color-profile.cpp:758:34: error: ‘sanitizeString’ is not a member of
make: *** [color-profile.o] Error 1
Did I miss something?
Please consider the environment before printing this email.
C++ification of inkscape has been a long term planned goal for inkscape. To
the same accordance I would like to ask a few questions:
1. Does the dependency on GObject need to be removed?? The current code is
huge and based on GObject as inheritance, increasing the complexity further.
But if we wish to use the functionalities of GTK+ and remove GObject from
the picture, wouldn't it be possible and feasible to instead use GTKMM to
suffice for the same???
2. While c++ifying what is going to be the fate of the inkscape's own
implementation of garbage collection??
3. What are your views regarding GTKMM to be introduced in the codebase for
Expecting replies from the developers.
(best wishes for the new year!)
Cairo 1.10.2 has been released, and a bug concerning Inkscape was fixed.
It is a pity it is just too late to include in 0.48.1
Krzystof, can you update Cairo in the Windows devlibs when 0.48.1 is
I finally found the time to make all of the source packages for 0.48.1,
sorry about the delay. They're uploading to Source Forge here:
As per-usual please don't do mass announcements of the release until
packagers for the various platforms have a chance to build installable
images and upload them.
Here are the hashes for the paranoid :)
== MD5 ==
== SHA1 ==
Now that 0.48.1 is 'out', shall I try and upgrade our 2geom copy?
I am in a situation this month that I have time to do mindless
search&replace operations, which will be necessary to do the 2geom
As we know, I like my distro to be bleeding... With libpoppler 0.16.0
we're again broken with compilation. I really think that we need to
work on a proper solution for this because it seems like every 6
months we have to add additional checks to compensate for how things
change. Also, I noticed that libwpg 0.2 isn't detected either, I tried
mucking w/ configure.ac and had no success.
I was doing a teaching session on Inkscape for the Ubuntu User Days a
few days ago. As with almost every show-and-tell, something went wrong.
This was Inkscape 0.47 for Ubuntu 10.10 and the document that I created
from scratch caused inkscape to crash.
What's interesting is that the image was saved by the crash protection
save feature. And although the image can be opened by gnome and seen in
firefox, opening it in Inkscape 0.47 causes it to crash again.
I'd like to know if the crash still exists in Inkscape 0.48, which
unfortunately isn't available for Ubuntu yet. If it still exists, I'll
report a bug and we'll get it nailed.
If you're interested in what I did to cause the problem, it's all
recorded in the live session: http://livestre.am/AWfN Crash is at about

Version of ImageMagick is 6.3.7-9 (installed from repository), dev-libs (libmagick-dev, libmagick++-dev) are installed too.
>What version of ImageMagick has been installed? Have the dev-libs ofImageMagick also been installed?
