When trying to load Inkscape on a Mac running 10.4.9 I get a message
saying I need X11. I already have X11 installed. Thinking there may
be a newer version, I downloaded the latest version from Apple. It
was not possible to load it. What's the problem?
for some drawing I drew a circle using the ellipse tool, and then used
the node editor to give it a pie-shaped appearance. Now whenever I use
the ellipse tool, I get the pie thingy, not the normal circle. Of
course I could just delete the .inkscape directory altogether, but is
there a better way?
(v0.44, Debian etch)
I notice that while Inkscape offers a "save to .pdf" option, there's no
way to specify dpi. I'd like to be able to have 300dpi .pdf images.
What workarounds are available?

Some more praise:
We use Inkscape to make posters for scientific meetings. The ease with
which we can create beautiful, unintrusive text boxes and flow charts is
unparalleled. And of course cartoons of all sorts. I can't hardly
believe we used to bring in PowerPoint for the task! those nightmarish
days are over. Plus, Inkscape intergrates very well with the host OS,
i.e. dragging and dropping images and text just works.
In this regard, I must mention that exporting to PDF is a big deal.
Figuring out the exact dimensions of the poster relative to the final
print is some sort of obscure magic for us, simple mortal users. With
PDFs, printers (or their drivers) have zero problems to scale on the fly
and thus generate perfect maximized print outs of our gigantic posters.
What surpises me, though, is that exporting to PDF seems to leave images
uncompressed, resulting in 300+ Mb posters.
In short: congratulations! And keep at it! We take time to tell our
visitors (at the poster, during the conference) how the poster was made,
since they usually comment on how beautiful it looks (no kidding).
Inkscape, Blender and ImageJ are always mentioned.

I just upgraded to 0.45.1 from 0.43.2 (I think) and I can no longer adjust
stroke widths. The dialog is present and I can adjust color and other
features but not width (or dash either).
Any suggestions? Is returning to the earlier version my only choice?

I can use the File->Open command and open a file in over 20 formats - raster or otherwise...I can also import just about any type of file but when I try to save to a .dxf format I get an empty file - unless I've added some lines from within InkScape - then only my additions are saved. The raster image I opened or imported is lost.
I'd like to use InkScape as a file converter - where I can open rasters and save to vectors. Is this possible? Why allow raster files to be opened or imported if they cant be retained?
The answer might be obvious, but I'm new to this...just built a CNC Wood Routing machine and was looking for a way to convert rasters (usually jpeg or gif) to .dxf so I can then convert them to the 'g-code' necessary to operate the router.
I've found and tried some apps dedicated to raster/vector conversion and they do work, but they don't allow any editing. InkScape would be perfect since I could open, modify and then (hopefully) save to .dxf

I like what I have so far in the attached file, but how can I fill in
the blades of the windmill with a solid color? Please advise.
Thanks in advance for the help.
BTW, if the attachment doesn't make it through, I also posted the file here:
Does anyone know if there's an easy way to grab an image with a scanner and
use inkscape to "save to PDF"?
...I'm moving to linux-vile and I'm jonesing for an Acrobat
Professional/Distiller "make pdf from scanner" replacement.
I don't even care if I have to convert raster data to vector data to do
it... just give me my fix!
