I've got this issue: in the pull down font menu, I can't pick any fonts. The
fonts are highlighted, but they're not applied and the pull down menu is not
closed, jus as if I've not clicked. Please help.

I run system 10.4.11 on an iBook G4 (this model:
I've downloaded Inkshape and followed the described procedure. When I
open the program, another program called X11 also opens. A few seconds
after, Inkshape quits, leaving only X11 open. This happen every time.
I've tried to download Inkshape again a few months later, and the
situation is still the same.
I was just wondering if anyone might be up to manning a booth for
LugRadio Live UK?
It is coming up fairly soon, but as of the beginning of the week they
still had some room for exhibiting. I won't be able to make it, but the
one in the USA was very good.
If anyone could make it there to have an Inkscape presence, we could get
together demo art, fliers that can be printed, etc.
Hi everybody, thanks for all the replies, and sorry if I'm not replying you, due to an exam I haven't got much free time.
Hystrix.. what do you mean with flowed text? And how to unflow it if necessary? please notice that I've got the italian version of inkscape. I wanted to switch to the english one, but I don't know how to do that as well.. !!
Thanks ROb for the example.. it is working, so that helped me understanding that my problem is nor a corrupted installation nor a wrong procedure. Can it be due to font choosen? I tried with many, though.. still no way.. as soon as I will have tried a little further, I will send you an example not working.
Thanks very much for your kind help!

.I tried it and found out that it doesn't work with flowed text, maybe
.that was your case. If so, can you try unflowing the text?

There's a side issue that's been kicking around for a while now.
Inkscape doesn't really have it's dependencies explicitly listed. So
things may or may not work for certain users trying to build on
certain platforms, OS versions, etc.
For example, I put in a patch recently that uses g_timeout_add_seconds
(). In the documentation on it, the function is listed as "Since
2.14". So that bumps the requirement to have glib2 >= 2.14. However
that would make things no longer work on Fedora 7 and instead bump
Fedora 8 as the minimum there. Since that's only a year old, the
might be a bit too soon to bump.
Anyway, this highlights a need we have to be tracking what we bump
and what impact it will have. This is something that even non-
programmers can help with, so I've added a quick section and link to
the Help Wanted wiki page:
A first step would be if people skimmed through the glib and gtk+
docs looking for newer functions. Then adding those that are in our
codebase to the "Functions Used" table on the wiki could really help:
Then if someone has a distro they care about, they can add it and/or
fill out details for at at
Finally, the developers can get a handle on creeping dependencies,
and perhaps add a few #ifdef's or alternate methods where needed in
order to keep things sane.
Does anybody know how to use text as object-mask?
I need to cut a text in a picture so that the text would actually be transparent!
The goal is easily achieved converting text in path, and grouping it with a background, and then using it as a mask for the picture. But in this way I'm loosing the chance to change what is written in a second moment.
Reading some references, I saw that text objects should work as any other objects about masking, but they they don't.
What am I missing?
