installing Inkscape


i wanna try out this program called Inkscape, but i have some problems installing it.
on the sourceforge page i found a rpm for suse 9.2 (inkscape-0.40-CVS.i586.suse92.rpm), but when i install i get this message:

Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
	libatkmm-1.6.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
	libgdkmm-2.4.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
	libglibmm-2.4.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
	libgtkmm-2.4.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
	libpangomm-1.4.so.1 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
	libsigc-2.0.so.0 is needed by inkscape-0.40-CVS
i have tried to find rpms for these, but it is impossible! so i downloaded the source and tried to install...but got as far as:

Code:
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4.0  libxml-2.0 >= 2-2.4.24  sigc++-2.0 >= 2.0.3  gtkmm-2.4  ... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4.0  libxml-2.0 >= 2-2.4.24 sigc++-2.0 >= 2.0.3  gtkmm-2.4  ) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-configcan find them.
i have got gtkmm2, libsigc++2, libxml2 installed...why do i still get this msg?

can anyone help?

thanks

Try installing the autopackage:

http://navi.cx/~mike/inkscape/inkscape-0.40.x86.package

see here: http://autopackage.org/docs/howto-install/

Oh .. I should mention. If you are having problems with gtkmm/sigc++ delete them from your system using rpm or however you installed them, then run the inkscape autopackage. It should (touch wood) download and install them for you.

The autopackage now statically links the c++ dependencies in the nightly builds so you should have no problems using it.

This "autopackage" thing is awesome, it's so easy to use. I had a problem installing inkscape on Slack, but this solved it.

Oops, I forgot to mention, the nightly builds which don't have the GTKmm dependency are here:

http://navi.cx/~mike/inkscape/inksca...vs.x86.package

at least until the next release.

WARNING WARNING WARNING - these are generated automatically from whatever the developers have checked in at the time. They are not going to be as stable as real releases are.

Once the next Inkscape stable release is out, there will be a newer autopackage for that as well but for now it's only the nightlies.

after the installation run:

#/sbin/ldconfig (root, don't forget... :-))

this fix the problem with the libgdkmm-2.4.so.1 thing and the others...

I've set up a page on the Inkscape wiki about just these problems.

My hope is that we'll find a solution, and then have a nice page on the wiki over there.

Okay! I've discovered what I think is a nice way to install Inkscape on FC3.

Try adding the following, to /etc/yum.conf:
Code:
 [dries]
 name=Extra Fedora rpms dries - 3 - i386
 baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/dries/fedora/linux/3/i386/dries/RPMS/
Then just type:
Code:
 # yum install inkscape
Does that work for you?

The history behind this is over on the Inkscape wiki.

Be careful with mixing repositories like that. I'd just use the autopackage to be honest, but then I would say that, I'm biased

I didn't want to use autopackage, because it said in the FAQs that the RPM system wouldn't know about it.

That seems more dangerous to me than mixing repositories; I would think that: mixing repositories, you at least have consistency within the RPM system.

Though I should say: I don't really know. It's all voodoo in there to me.
