I posted an answer to Mikaels question 3 days ago but from the wrong email account. Since the error messages for this mailing list are disabled I was not aware of that and never bothered to check if the message made it onto the list.
This is a really frustrating experience (this happened to me once or twice now) and it would be great if posting errors could be reenabled.

You need to create a closed path for each triangle (e.g. see http://www.microugly.com/inkscape-quickguide/#finish-path) and then set the fill of this object.
You can draw the triangles exactly overlapping by using some helping lines and the snapping function (http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Snapping.html).
I really recommend http://inkscape.org/doc/basic/tutorial-basic.html for starters.

I have a drawing like the attached compass.svg. I want to color it so that it looks like the attached compass.png. How do I do that in Inkscape?
Using the Paint Bucket Tool doesn't work well since it doesn't handle the sharp corners correctly, I get something like the attached SharpCorner.png (after removing the stroke of the created paths), when zooming in as much as possible.
I think that the problem is that the Paint Bucket Tool is bitmap based. I would rather need a vector based fill tool. Is there any such possibility in Inkscape?
