Apparently GIMP can also do it.

There is a difference between "open", "use", and "import"....

If you want to manipulate the file in vector mode, then something like GIMP is not going to work.

Don't know what "advance stuffs" means----but try it.

ok so the thing is i need a software that can open an .AI file and then slice the image. right now thats all i need to do. just opening the image and slicing it then save the sliced images.

i tried installing the inkscape using the one from slacky.eu but im having this error when running it on terminal

Code:
inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: libgc.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
then i tried searching libgc on the slackbuild but i cannot find it. any help here? thanks..

gc is a garbage-collector library:
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool....8.orig.tar.gz

Put the src2pkg command in front of that URL and you should have a package pretty quickly.
