Re: yai - Inkscape animation

Waw :) It looks really interesting to me (that's why I suggested you to talk about it here), but I have one big problem (which maybe other Inkscapers will have also?): the installing and getting it work part seems a bit over my head... You did a great job explaining how to do it, and I would probabl...

Re: DXF export am I doing it wrong?

If it weren't for the top 2 curls (I'll come back to them later), you can just select all the rest (rectangle and left, right and bottom curls), then do: - Ctrl+Shift+G (ungroup), if necessary several times until no groups left - Path > Object to Path - Path > Stroke to Path - Path > Union Done: one...

Re: DXF export am I doing it wrong?

A kind of weird solution is this: - export as PNG (I used a rather high resolution of about 2500px longest side) - in a new Inkscape document, import the PNG - Path -> Trace Bitmap. I used Brightness cutoff, threshold 0,450 See result attached: one closed path object, looks exactly like the original...

And follow-up of the follow-up, seems I was wrong, it's not to be proprietary after all? (see this post ). Err... sorry, but no, not at all.

Re: vpaint integration into inkscape

Follow-up: Inkscape and Vpaint-integration seems out of the question, Vpaint is to be proprietary (see this thread on the Vpaint forum, quoted below)

That seems to be a misunderstanding (see this thread on the Vpaint forum). The idea is to make it proprietary code.

Re: GPL license and commercial work

Re: Use Inkscape as Digital Calligraphy Pad

I noticed here on my system that the calligraphy tool :tool_calligraphic: can have quite some lag (which is more or less normal, given the large amount of nodes it produces). Is it actually only when you lift the pen that the stroke is displayed, or is it just a question of time (delay)? I mean, let...

Re: GPL license and commercial work

I must have missed the part where they intended it to be proprietary. You didn't miss it, it was never mentioned (at least not where I saw it). It's when I asked about integrating Inkscape and Vpaint (on the Vpaint forum) that the monkey came out of the sleeve (as we say in Dutch). Kind of disappoi...

Re: How to change background color of an image

Two ways I can think of:
1) File -> Document properties -> Background color (mind also the transparency, by default the background is transparent)
2) Put an object (eg. a rectangle) of the desired color below all the rest (maybe on a layer apart that you put at the bottom).

Re: Opacity acting strangely

It would be great if you could post the SVG. If you're concerned about copyright issues and such, you can leave out eg. the bus, singer, light and such, leaving only the blue rectangle, the text and the greyish rectangle in the back. But leave the layers and such as they are... just make a stripped ...

OK, so basically it works, but only command-line (unless you get in so deep that you're better off with a VM). Which is fine. Interesting solution.

Re: Two versions of Inkscape side by side on Linux

Nice! So, basically, if I understand correctly, you have a new directory in which a full-blown linux distro lives (jailed to this directory). To enter this jailed Linux distro, you open a terminal and do sudo uck-remaster-chroot-rootfs /path/to/chroot/directory/ Whatever you do next in that terminal...
