I just created a document using inkscape to layout objects of which I
known the position in real space. Because some of these positions are
negative, I specified an offset in the origin of the grid so that the grid
point (0,0) is not the bottom left corner of the document. So far so
good. Once the whole layout has been created, I now would like to know
the position of other objects on there (middle points and such). This
position is given by the rulers although at the precision of the reading
of the ruler. However, the other ways of getting positions (little box at
the bottom right of the application window or boxes in one of the
toolbars) give the position in the document's references ((0,0) at bottom
left), not in the grid's.
Did I miss anything or is that a bug (or a feature that could possibly be
configurable to offer alternatives)?
I'm having a bizarre problem in 0.44 with text objects containing
characters from the PUA -- specifically, Klingon glyphs -- and I thought
I'd check here to make sure I'm not doing anything stupid before
submitting a bug report.
I have a sequence of Klingon characters, in the range f8d0 to f8ff, and
they aren't displaying. The font I'm using (clearlyU; it is in Debian)
has glyphs for these characters. I know this because they show up in Vim
with guifont set appropriately, and also in gucharmap. I know that
Inkscape has the right characters in the text object, because when I
look at the 'text' tab of the 'text and font' dialogue box, it shows the
right numbers. I know the object should be visible, because when I type
normal characters in they show up.
Despite all this, the Klingon characters don't show up in the font
preview area in the 'text and font' dialogue box, nor in the document
Any hints? Has this been seen before? If it is a bug, what information
(beyond the usual) would you like to see on the report?

I compiled and installed Inkscape 0.44 from source. The User-interface
is perfect in german-language, but under Help/Tutorials there are some
/usr/local/share/inkscape/tutorials/tutorial-advanced.svg (is present,
but not in a german version)
Am I right that there are no translations of that files into german? If so:
Should I translate them?
In the meantime, wouldn't it a good idea to link to the english ones
instead of producing an error?
Is there a way to set up the latest version of Inkscape with all the
libraries it needs on a distribution that doesn't yet support Cairo
without upgrading to Cairo system-wide?
Xandros 4 doesn't support Cairo, and you can't install Cairo without
nuking all the Xandros-specific stuff. I'm running Inkscape just fine on
my Kubuntu machine but would like to run it on my Xandros machine as well...
... so does anyone know if it's possible to set up an environment *with*
Cairo that Inkscape can use without nuking the standard environment that
doesn't know what to do with it?

I am trying to use Inkscape 0.44 to design basic graphics for websites
(think content boxes, buttons, titles and so on) and to get highlight and
shadow borders around them I make use of linked offsets, which I find very
useful especially when I need to adjust the basic shape (from which the
linked offsets are made) later on.
Unfortunately, using linked offsets seems to have a very detrimental
effect on performance, in my example file , I have just a few content
boxes and a single button with a small icon on it, yet certain basic
actions like creating a new shape, hiding/unhiding/moving layers or shape
adjustments are starting to take a lot of time.
On my desktop machine, which has an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ CPU, hiding the
"Buttons" layer causes Inkscape to use 100% CPU and become unresponsive
for a good 8 seconds.
Considering that I need many more buttons and boxes and thus vastly
increasing the amount of linked offsets, I am wondering wether there are
other ways of creating buttons and boxes like these without linked offsets
while retaining the same kind of flexibility or if there is some other way
I can work like this but with better performance.
Any suggestions (even alternatives to Inkscape that may be better suited
for this) are welcome.
+ I use debian Sarge... it comes with Inkscape .41... .44 wont
load with what I have, and most of the new dependencies
aren't on my CD set... so... how to proceed ?
Is there, for instance, a way to get all the required libraries
together for an Inkscape .44 upgrade ?
I guess it would be easy enough to just download all the
separate dependency files... the debian site has links to all of
them... but, can I just install these newer packages side by side
with the older ones I have ? Thought I'd ask before I broke
Thanks to debian users who have done this already maybe !

I've had a thought that others may be interested in.
I would like to start a forum dedicated to inkscape. A place where we
can have different headings/subheadings, tutorials, screenshots, WIP,
and general discussions.
I wanted to see if others would be interested in making use of such a
site. I would probably register under inkscapeforums.com or simmilar.
I can pay for domain registration and some hosting too. But, does anyone
know the overall cost for running forums per annum?
Also, I don't want to tread on the feet of the Devs and everyone who
started inkscape, would you guys be cool with the idea?
So, give some feedback and see if we can get this thing started.
