I am the original author of the typography extensions in Inkscape. Those
were implemented roughly 4 years ago and used to work well. I tried using
them again today and noticed that the positioning of the guidelines is
wrong in the current development version of Inkscape.
The specific one I'm talking about is:
Looking at git blame (I am using git bzr) I have seen that tavmjong did
modify the code some months ago (actually in October 2014) adding a
declaration of document units being in pixels.
Author: tavmjong-free <tavmjong@...8...>
Date: Thu Oct 9 11:25:39 2014 +0200
Add proper 'viewBox', set 'inkscape:document-units',
set maximum em-size to 2048 as is typical in TrueType.
What I observe on the current misbehaviour is that the positioning of the
guidelines is being done as if the units were given in millimeters...
I'm not sure whose fault is this: If it is the parsing of the sp-guide
parameters that ignore units, or if it is my extension that should
explicitely append "px" to the values instead of simply passing plain
Anyway... It's been a long time I've written this code and perhaps someone
here who's been more active these years in the project may have a quick
answer to my issue. Otherwise, I'll be investigating it further in order to
get it fixed, anyway.

Hi Axel, David and others,
There is no issue or problem as far as translations are concerned. We already have the translations done for all Indic languages and these are also attached in the Bugs (https://bugs.launchpad.net/~cpdhutadmal ).
If this can be taken ahead, Indic language users will be very happy.

I suspect what is missing is volunteers to do the translation. How to
contribute a translation is outlined on this web page
I find my Inkscape 0.91 for Windows 7 64-bit has problems in rendering
LaTeX. What I did was:
1) Extensions - Render - LaTeX
2) Enter "test" in LaTeX input
3) Click "Apply".
Then, a cmd.exe window will pop out and just hang there. If I close
this window, I get:
Inkscape has received additional data from the script executed. The
script did not return an error, but this may indicate the results will
not be as expected.

Could anyone please help? Thanks!

The database came back online 7 minutes ago, and the website has been
turned from read-only (sqlite) to inkscape_live (MySQL). All downloads
and errors should be solved from now.
Thank you to everyone for being patient and please contact the various
user groups to let them know the process is done and things are back up.

Update on the database rebuild...

Just an update on our current progress. The replay of the binlogs are still
going and we seem to be about 55% the way through. I'm not entirely sure
when it will finish but I'm hoping sometime this afternoon at the current
rate and then we can finally start the restores.
Thanks again for your patience.

despite all this mess, I wish you a happy Sysadmin Day :)
Thanks for keeping us informed and dealing with the flood of bug reports!

- Yes. There are a few things:
I had just changed all those Windows download links to the non-sf
addresses (which seems a bad move now... but I couldn't foresee this...
- we wouldn't have those Windows dl bug reports and unhappy users now if
I had not changed them.... :-( - can't kick myself as hard as I'd like
When OSUOSL has brought the db back, it would be good if you could
restore the Windows downloads pages for all languages, *if* it still
seems a good idea to use our own file archive instead of the sf ones
until they are in the resources system.
- Animation page (all languages)
- A few smaller changes to the FAQ (at least German, English)
- To-Do list (all languages)
- Contribute page had been updated (at least German, English)

Dear inkscape devels, docs and users,
OSUOUL had a major database error (they accidentally dropped all their
databases from their master database). They're restoring currently from
a backup from two weeks ago, so any changes to the website in the last
two weeks will need to be recreated.
We do have content backups (cms etc) which we do each night, so if
you've written something recently and would like content from the backup
let me know. We don't keep backups of user registrations or uploaded
gallery items so those in the last two weeks are gone.
Like last time I swapped the database to a read only sqlite db from
April. So at least the website shows base pages, there's still some
errors since I really didn't expect database fallback to be a huge part
of what we had to deal with but it's something we may want to improve if
we think osuosl's database is likely to have problems again in the
Thanks for your attention.
