I am about to update the "getting started" instructions for new
If you have any further suggestions, feel free to answer. I'd like to
consolidate all changes into one big edit because every change needs to
Here's my list of changes:
- git SSH -> change to HTTPS (as discussed a few months ago)
- "Install build dependencies": replace old "apt-get" instructions with
the new script from inkscape-ci-docker.
Download and run the script to install all requirements:
bash install_dependencies.sh --recommended
- "/usr in the example" -> "in the example, it is installed in inst/
inside the source folder"
- "Versions <= 0.92" -> remove from tutorial, move to Wiki
remove mentioning of autotools, as CMake is now the default
- do not mark optional arguments with "[ ]" so that copy-paste into the
shell works. Also, omitting some of these arguments (e.g. ccache) will
horribly slow down compilation, so they aren't truly optional. Instead,
just add a note that these arguments may be omitted.
- after changes are published: remove redundant info from the Wiki page
Have a nice weekend,
I would like to thank everyone for the hard work you all had during the
past 10 years or so.
I am an inkscape user since 2007 and I couldn't be more satisfied.
This project came such a long way both in the application and in the team
I remember we were using mailing lists in source forge. And when our
website was not using Django.
What makes me the happier is to see that the application now have layers,
floating panels, dark theme (spoiler for 1.0 version!), more features, more
languages, and it runs on Mac without X11!
I got really surprised when I realized that a lot of the feature requests
were accepted and even implemented in the project. So thank you very much
for caring. And for reaching out.
I still feel I don't have a lot of knowledge on the program (yes, this is
how I feel) and my time is limited, just like anybody else, but I will do
my best to commit to help onboard more users whenever possible.
Thank you so much for everyone involved in this project. Inkscape makes the
world a better place for everyone.
I'm emailing the developer list to see if I need to submit a bug report
for an issue I haven't been able to resolve through the User Forum.
I am using Inkscape 0.92 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 to cut vinyl using a Liyu
SC631 cutter, connected using a USB port.
Before I updated to Ubuntu 18.04.3 I used Inkcut without any problems.
I understand that Inkcut is now deprecated so I have been trying to use
the Export/Plot extension instead.
The issue is that when I do this the cutter cuts an extra, unwanted,
line direct from the last point of the drawing back to the origin,
spoiling the item being cut.
The problem does not occur when I use Inkcut.
Is this a case of "operator error", in which case what am I doing
wrong, or is it a bug which I need to report?
Any replies gratefully received.
Happy Holidays everyone! I had lunch with one of the Fontforge
developers the other day, Skef Iterum. He's been working on
improvements to their glyph outline stroking support, including some
algorithmic work that he thinks would be relevant to Inkscape as well.
Once Inkscape 1.0 is done and the codebase is open for feature work, he
may be interested in seeing if the same algorithmic work could be
applied to Inkscape's codebase. He's not conversant in Inkscape's
C++ coding conventions (fontforge is C) but has been going through 2geom
and livarot and sees some areas for improvement.
Marc, I suggested you'd be a great guy for Skef to bounce ideas and
plans around with, and offered to introduce you to him. Would you be
around to chat with him on IRC some time?

We are very happy about the variety and number of submissions to the
contest, and the involvement of so many community members and
contributors in the voting process.
We are already working on finding good places for making use of other
fantastic entries from the contest gallery :) Tutorials, the Inkscape
website, the development version and more all need new, cool pictures to
show off Inkscape's abilities and its awesome community.

can you help by volunteering as an administrative backup for the
beginners' guide at https://inkscape-manuals.readthedocs.io ?
(as there's no official project email address, I'm not sure how else to
make sure that someone else has access there, too)
What I'd need from you is your readthedocs.org user name.
Currently, that position comes without any additional work, as I'm able
to take care of what needs to be done. It is only a backup thing, as
there's currently a bus factor of 1.
I'd like to have at least two other persons in the project registered
Thank you, Lucas!
I've added you as a developer there. I'll also add your name into our
list of persons who have access to parts of the Inkscape infrastructure,
so people will be able to find out whom to contact.
