first off all I have to say that I'M NOT A WINDOWS USER.
After, my boss, that is a windows user, would like to use inkscape. We have
tried to install it and basically we didn't have any problem. The question is
that we would like to know which dependencies needs inkscape to run in
windows, because we cannot use any import feature. So, we cannot open any ps,
eps, etc file.
We have tried to install python and perl, (without any success, or the import
feature doesn't work four us), but I have to say that I don't know very much
the windows platform (I'm very happy with the apt-get ;-)
So, please, could you tell me which software is necessary/recommend to run a
full inkscape in the Win platform? Somethink like to build it: x, y, z: To
run it, xa, yb, etc.

To everyone who uses snapping in Inkscape:
We plan to make _screen pixels_ (not px units) the default unit for
snapping distance, so that e.g. snapping at 5 pixels remains the same
distance on screen regardless of zoom.
The question is, do you still need absolute (not zoom-independent)
units for specifying snap distance? If so why?
If there are no voices in defence of abs units, we will remove them
altogether and use _only_ screen pixels. This will simplify the Doc
Prefs dialog and will be generally saner and simpler.

How can I join two node in a path? The error message, that, there are
not endnodes. how can I make them to endnodes?
I have made a quick mockup of the problem:
Thx in advance.
I can't seem to figure out how to get inkscape to send the output to the correct printer:
When I select the "Print/Ctrl-P" menu item, it just sends the file to a printer without providing a choice or dialog. I can 't seem to find a settings dialog for a default printer.
When I use "Print Direct", I get a valid ps file that does print properly via lpr. (And looks great!)
I am running Inkscape 0.43.
I am running Gentoo system, with libgnomeprint-2.10.3 and gnome of 2.10. Printing from gedit brings up a printer selection dialog and works properly.
Any ideas? Is this the correct behaviour for Ctrl-P, or should there be a dialog?
(If there are any developers reading) It also seems to me that the menu items are inconsistant/wrong. An ellipsis in a menu item to me implies there will be a follow-up dialog, whereas one without performs a direct action, so it should be (assuming that the correct behaviour for Print is to *not* bring up a dialog)

Yesterday I decided to install the 64 bit version of
Kubuntu on my laptop. When I went to install the
autopackage of Inkscape 0.43 an error occurred when it
tried to download and install autopackage itself:
"autopackage/libexec/autosu-gtk: error while loading
shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory"
This suggests to me that it's a problem with my
machine trying to install autopackage, not with how
Inkscape's specific package was set up -- however
because there had been a problem in the past with some
of the development build packages I wanted to check in
and make sure.
(Currently the kubuntu apt-get resources only contain
the 0.42 release, or I'd just that...)

Is it possible to measure angles in inkscape. I have completed the second
edition of my crime scene symbols (will upload to open clip art) and I am
now attempting to create templates for bloodstain pattern analysis. I can
accurately measure bloodstains and use those figures for trajectory analysis
with inkscape (very cool). In order to take the next leap I would need to
be able to measure angles in inkscape. The long range goal would to have a
worksheet in inkscape where the entire stain can be reconstructed and the
point of origin determined. Great for court and easy to use. Currently
investigators are using measuring tapes and protractors. Inkscape is an
incredible program and thanks to all of those that work so hard to make it
all that it is.
