BIGGEST ISSUE IS: Why does GIMP Gradients fail, when the dll is in
Also, if this plugin was working, can it use my existing gradients

I tried dropping a .ggr file into the gradients folder but the editor did

Yes, it seems that this has always been a problem on Windows, but I was
unaware of it. The loading of .dll's won't work until we have an
exported API, which will be a little while. Until then, I'll be porting
these over to internal extensions so they won't need to be loaded.
When I create a gradient in the editor and save it, I can only use
The next time I start up Inkscape and select gradient fill there are no

Yes, gradients are stored in the document.
I believe the Extension scripts you refer to are the .inx files found
"C:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\extensions", is this correct?
Can these be edited for each user?
Not currently, but I don't think that is really a good idea. For the
most part, the features that they will be dependent on will be system
wide, like where ps2edit is found, not based on a per-user installation.
I tried to get the EPS ext to not fail.
I edited (with notepad) the eps_input.inx file and put in "my path" to
ghost script in place of the "path" but Inkscape complained and would not
I put the file back to how it was originally but Inkscape still complained.
When I put the backup copy of the file I had made, back into folder Inkscape
Is there a certain format the .inx must be saved as, like UTF-8 or
OR does it check the file dates?
I added my ghost script path to "Environment Variables" hoping this would
make it find it.
Still got error on EPS Input ext.
I wonder if it has to do with gs actually being gswin32.exe?
All the extensions I can use are exe(windows) type, not compiled by me.
"path" just means to look in the path. Probably what you want to do is
change the dependency to read "c:\blah\blah.exe" instead of putting in
the XML. Any other Windows users here have Ghostscript using? I'm not
sure how things work on Windows.
