Had the same problem with Inkscape and frg on Slackware. Either build
inkscape yourself or try this package, ith worked here.
Well I did what Lars suggested and it works! There is one little
gotcha. The package should not be untarred in /usr/local/ but
rather in /. Perhaps I should have used pkgtool. In any case
version 44 works now on my system.
I'll have to save inkscape 44 before upgrading to a more recent
version however. I don't want to go through library hell all over
My thanks to those who offered advice.
