GPL license and commercial work

I'm having an interesting (to me, at least) conversation on the Vpaint forum about Inkscape and Vpaint , and the question of open source/GPL came up. (The idea is to make Vpaint proprietary BTW). Boris, the Vpaint developer, states that most animation studios wouldn't take the risk to touch a GPL co...

Re: Two versions of Inkscape side by side on Linux

Chroot and containers are definitely not something I want to, or am able to, venture into. That's over my head. A virtual machine is a good and easy solution, although it seems rather "heavy" for such a simple thing as running a second version of Inkscape, but I think there's no other way....

Oh yeah, sorry :mrgreen: Ubuntu 15.04
What would interest me most is installing the current stable release, next to a beta or testing release.

Re: Two versions of Inkscape side by side on Linux

Interesting -- you mean when you install a new program on Linux, you aren't able to choose the location where it's installed? I've always had the impression Linux generally gives the user more control than the other os. Powerusers have total control, of course. Mere mortals just click a program (pa...

Re: Filter Effects Disappear When Zooming Out

(Better late than never? :) ) Could you upload the SVG file somewhere and post the link here, so we can see what it gives on our systems?

Re: Two versions of Inkscape side by side on Linux

Thanks for your reply, brynn. On Windows it's easy. On Linux however, by default the latest version replaces the older one.
So I'm still curious what a Linux user with experience in installing two Inkscape versions would have to say about this...

Two versions of Inkscape side by side on Linux

Sorry if this has been asked before, can't find an answer.
Is there a way of installing two versions of Inkscape side by side (eg. stable and testing) on a Linux machine without compiling at least one of the two?

Re: fullscreen canvas view, drawing only

Already exists. Try Shift+F11 - a toggle to hide all GUI parts, including the menubar; toggle setting works separately for normal view and for full-screen view ( F11 ). Use F12 to hide/show the main dock (the container for docked dialogs on the right side). OK, interesting, didn't know that, thanks...

fullscreen canvas view, drawing only

Has there already been discussion of a feature in Inkscape which would allow to view only the canvas (like Fullscreen but also hiding all windows, menus etc, only show the drawing itself)? Just to see the final result without clutter, from time to time, then go back to drawing. Or does it exist alre...

I don't know if there is a feature request. And the LP search is so bad that I just don't trust it. It works better, at least for me, the fewer words I use. So searching "node intersection" turns up 9 reports. "path intersection" gives 15 results. M aybe also try "add node&...

One thing that is missing is that the node tool should snap to intersections when inserting nodes (by double clicking). Oh yes, great idea!

Re: (Parts of) separate intersecting paths to one object

The bucket tool is OK, but I like an object with a fill better. Because the bucket tool adds a new object, and if you change the original object afterwards, you may have to retweak the bucket fill also. In my example, where the paths don't really intersect but only "touch" (the end node of...
