Hi, I have some modeling software which is able to export to SVG.
Unfortunately, the SVG exporter isn't perfect, and the documents it
exports do not have a width or height set on the top-level SVG
element. I'm now trying to use Inkscape from the command line to
export these document as PS or EPS, and it understandably is giving me
this warning message:
** (inkscape:13070): WARNING **: Could not set export-bbox-page option
for this export.
And the document that it returns has what looks like inkscapes default
page width and height set. The same is true if I use -l to export as
I can, however, still query the document using -W and -H to get its
bounds, and I can use -D with the PNG exporter to get a raster of the
entire document. I'd like to do the same thing with PS export, but I
can't seem to figure out how. Is this possible? Right now, the best
solution I have been able to come up with is using inkscape to query
to documents width and height and inserting them into the document
root using sed before finally attempting to use inkscape to export as
PS. I think there must be a cleaner solution than this, though.
Manually setting the width and height of the generated PS document
using command-line flags would be enough, but I can't seem to get it
I'd appreciate any guidance anyone can offer. Thanks,
I have installed Inkscape.app under Mac OSX Leopard. Inkscape works just
great as a mac app.
I have Inkscape 0.46-devel, built jun 23 2008.
I have OS X version 10.5.5.
Now I want to build the LilyPond web site (www.lilypond.org). This process
requires a command line inkscape in order to render some graphics. When I
try to run the scripts, I get the following message:
make: inkscape: Command not found
I've tried locating inkscape from the command line
shell> which inkscape
and it can't be found.
I've also tried to find a file named inkscape on my Mac using Finder. I
can't find a file named inkscape (which is what I assume would be needed to
run inkscape from the command line). I do find Inkscape.app.
Is there a path spec I need to add, or a symlink, or something of the sort?
Any pointers on how to make Inkscape available from the command line?
To finish my project, aimed to describe a GUI application from SVG , I
definitely need a way defining type of GUI element when drawing from
inkscape (button, label,scrollbar...) .
I am using the id to name the component eg (startstop) and I need another
way categorize it (eg button).
I do not want the following form : id=rtstopButton, because I would need
string treatment when parsing svg to remove "Button"
Have you got another idea/way ?
Please, where can I download the source code for Inkscape?
V e r n
WinXp sp2 , wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-184.108.40.206-py26.exe , Boa 0.6.1, Delphi5
Not strictly an Inkscape problem but closely related
When I print to a PDF file the Inkscape metadata information doesn't show in the PDF file, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can write the metadata into the PDF file?
Inkscape 0.46 / Ubuntu 8.04 / AMD64

A little PR for the Inkscape Docs team:
We recently got our Inkscape Manual (the fruit of our Book Sprint) put
on Lulu (http://www.lulu.com/content/4617381). You've probably seen the
article by the Russian on the inkscape.org which has a link - if not,
check it out!
The published book, while being a reasonably finished work of good
quality, is not comprehensive. We would like it to be more so. Here
are some things that will help us to continue with this work:
1. Sales of the current version (somewhat limited 1st EDITION!!!!) on
Lulu will help us afford a future Booksprint.
2. Contributions to the manual on our Floss Manuals workspace are
greatly needed. Of course, as this needs some coordination, it's best
to start on the inkscape-docs list (signup at lists.sourceforge.net) to
find out where to begin.
3. Magical powers to generate whatever good thing we want without much
If you can help with any of these things, that would be GREAT! In
particular, getting word out and posting the link to the Lulu store
would be of great benefit.
