since I didn't get any response to my first query, I have
to post this again, since the problem is still there:
After installing Inkscape 0.45 from the autopackage,
Inkscape freezes when I try to invoke the text tool (both
by means of the shortcut and the button). Did anyone
else experience this, and is there a fix of some kind for

I'm using Inkscape for diagrams of computer networks, i.e.
the sort of thing that Visio is good for.
Is there a gallery or library of "shapes" or "components"
anywhere? (Hoped to find something on www.openclipart.org
but that site is still down.)
I'm new to the list, and would like to thank the Inkscape developers for
making great free (as in freedom) software and for promoting an
important open standard, SVG, as the drawing format.
Konqueror 3.5.x ( and Apple's Safari?) and Mozilla Firefox 2.x are SVG
enabled, which means children can now draw their web site using only
Inkscape and put the linked SVG files directly on the web. This is very
easy, a lot of fun, and I find the results are colourful and vivid. I've
made a simple example - would you like to see? Take a look at

I have just started using Scribus for page layout and have had an issue
with the import of an SGV created in Inkscape. The image has two lines
of text running along two separate curves. When I import the SVG into
Scribus I get a message that tells the "SVG file contains unsupported
features" and the resulting import has broken the text away from the
paths. Are there text/path features in Inkscape which are non-standard
or is this a Scribus problem? Interestingly enough an import of the same
image when saved as an EPS imports fine.
To solve a bug I need a little help from the community. I would need
the output of this command:
ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libXine*
Just copy paste the line above in a Terminal and then copy paste the
output back in an email. I would need this information from users
with 4 different setups:
- 10.3.* (Panther) with X11 installed (X11User package)
- 10.3.* (Panther) with X11 and X11-SDK installed (X11-SDK is
available in the developer tools, when you install XCode and such)
- 10.4.* (Tiger) with X11 installed (X11User package)
- 10.4.* (Tiger) with X11 and X11-SDK installed (X11-SDK is available
in the developer tools, when you install XCode and such)
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, I'm working with Inkscape to make some illustrations and noticed
some little problem. When I import a png file it losses detail and
looks blurred, I attach and image so you see what I'm talking about.
Inkscape is a great program and I like it more every time I use it.
That's why I want to learn to produce great work with it.
Please if anyone knows what can I do to avoid this inconvenience let me know.
Import of text in SVG in Scribus is really an issue unless converted to
If it needs to be edited, you should use Scribus's features directly - if
not convert to shape.
Creating "non-flowed" text that has been "Put on Path" still

How can I crop an SVG file with Inkscape? As in, I have an SVG file,
and I want a smaller SVG file that contains a rectangular portion of
it. Seems pretty basic, right? What's the simplest way to do it?
