Autopackage build from 03.12.2005 depends on libstdc++.so.6. PLD Linux
is known from having fresh packages, but I have only got so.5. Manual
linking so.6 ends with errors and won't let inkscape start.
[root@...1357... lib]# rpm -q libstdc++
[root@...1357... lib]# rpm -ql libstdc++
Also there is always the warning (non fatal) about libpng problems.
If you're an Inkscape user who has run into issues with poor PDF
capabilities in the past, we need YOU!
Over the past year we've gotten *so* many reports about various troubles
with PDF (and Postscript) support in Inkscape. For some people it just
works, for others it works after a lot of fiddling, and for many it
fails to meet expectations.
We want to change this! :-)
In fact, by this time next year, I think we could completely reverse the
situation, to where Inkscape has the *best* PDF and Postscript export
and import of all drawing tools out there.
In the past, users have said they'd like to contribute to help make
Inkscape better in one way or another, but often we've been able to meet
those requests just for free. Unfortunately, PDF support has proven to
not been one of those cases; it's not an area that generally attracts
developers to work on it voluntarily.
So what we'd like to try is to set things up so the community can
contribute towards sponsoring this work. If we can get enough pledges,
and a concensus on a plan of what to do, then we'll collect the funds
and contract someone to perform the work.
What we need *right now* though, is to know what the issues are that we
need to solve. This is where you come in. Tell us what problems you've
had with Inkscape PDF/PS or features you think are critical. Put them
into the 'What Users Need from Inkscape PDF/PS Support' section here:
Also, add yourself to the Yes/No Poll, with a yes or no vote and
explanation of what condition needs to be met for you to be willing to
make a contribution.

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet Brandon Sanders when
he visited OSDL about a conference he's organizing. He's also a long
time Inkscape user and fan.
Brandon's also involved in IBESI, an org that helps ordinary people
create and run R&D projects. He's been looking for good guinea pigs.
It struck me that this could be one way to meet our PDF export/import
needs. It seems to fit Brandon's model very well. The community
needs this feature badly, and users may be willing to fund development
if there's a solid plan and concensus.
Anyway, to keep this email short, I'm going to gloss over a lot of
details and just post the link:
PLEASE, if you are interested in Inkscape PDF, do this:
1. Go to the above page
2. Vote "NO" (since there's no proposal yet)
Once we get 20 people participating, we can move to the next step (see
the page for details).
With a friend we try to use the Inkboard. We both have a laptop with
Ubuntu 5.10 and Inkscap autopackage with Inkboard.
We use the gristle.org jabber server, we see each other via gaim.
But when I try to invite him with inkboard, there is no invitation
dialog on the other side. I See him connect or deconnect on the bottom
of the Inkscape windows but cant share anything.
Have you some positive experience with inkboard?
Thanks (and sorry for my bad english)
To start off. I love working in inkscape. It allows us Linux guys to compete
in the Windows world. Great Job!
I am trying to move an object in inscape that has multiple layers and
gradients. Everytime I move the object the gradient anchors stay where they
use to be screwing up my gradients for the object. Is there a way to get the
gradient anchors to come with the object when I move it?
