I was wondering, is it possible to make bar charts like this one?
So far have I only tried to make simple 2D drawings in Inkscape. So does
anyone know, if it at all is possible to make 3D stuff and transparency
like this in Inkscape?
Lots of love,
I talked with Carl a bit more today about the PDF functionality with
Cairo and what it'd take to use it with Inkscape. Here's some
additional info. Carl, correct me if I've captured any of this wrong.
Some clarification on libsvg, when Carl said he wasn't supporting it, I
interpreted this to mean it needed another maintainer. He clarified
this; the reasons he had forked libsvg from librsvg originally was to
try out replacing its libart backend with a cairo backend. Now that
librsvg uses cairo as it's back end, there's no reason for libsvg to be
used, and in fact it lacks capabilities that are in librsvg.
So... The plan going forward would be this. svg2pdf as it exists now
is probably ok for a start; it's at least better than we got now, and
fits within our existing system. I think it's mainly going to be a
packaging issue to hook it into our extension framework.
Beyond that, svg2png needs to be modified to use librsvg instead of
libsvg. This is probably a fairly simple task, as svg2png is a really
short bit of code.
I told Carl about UberConverter. He wasn't sure if the design of
Cairo's PDF functionality would match UberConverter's structure, so a
crs2pdf via Cairo may not be the right approach.
Carl also mentioned something called Poppler(?) which does PDF _import_,
that works in conjunction with Cairo, and that would give us a good
round-trip to and from PDF. This sounds worth checking out.
I'm running Inkscape 0.42 on Ubuntu 5.10, and I can't get Inkscape to
talk to my printer... It's an HP Deskjet 5740, and Inkscape is pretty
much the only app that won't work with it.
I tried replacing "lp" in the printer dialogue command line with
"lpr", but that didn't work either... is there some method of getting
Inkscape to just talk to the Gnome Printer Manager for printing?
I've tried exporting as EPS and PDF to print in other apps - Evince or
Acroread - but exporting to those formats seems to mess up the SVG
gradients, and exporting to another format just to print is a
workaround, not a fix!
Hopefully someone can help - I've had a look thru the documentation
and some of the Inkscape websites with no luck so far...
I just downloaded InkScape, and I'm in the middle of reading tutorials and
playing with it.
What I can't find anywhere is how to trace a drawing using this program.
I used to place the bitmap in a second layer and then using a pen tool I was
able to trace it in another layer.
What is the technique to achieve the same with InkScape ?.
We have two new contests going over at deviantART! The first contest is
for an Inkscape calendar (which has a deadline of next Monday, 12/12/05)
and which we will be choosing 12 winning images. The second contest is
for Inkscape T-shirt designs to help fund Inkscape development (which we
have no arbitrary number of winners for, if it's good it'll probably be
accepted as one of many designs).
