Inkscape on Android (kind of)

Postby pelya » Tue Nov 12, 2013 12:01 pm

Hi. I've made a crude port of Inkscape to Android:
Google Play, .apk file, sources

It runs inside kind-of Linux emulation, but you don't need root to use it. There is magnifying glass for touch input, mouse/stylus support, with stylus pressure fully supported, so it should be most usable on Galaxy Note 10.1.

GIMP is included as a bonus, because there's no much difference between 500MB and 650Mb install.

Thank you pelya, it's amazing to see what you have done by porting it across to Android.

It does run a bit slow on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition but by closing Gimp & hiding the ruler I've managed to improve the performance slightly.

What is you motives for doing this project as you do not advertise "monetize" or sell your Virtual Machine, currently it's offered for free? Is your software secure as Samsung Knox has blocked it when it tried to gain unauthorised access to my system.

Great work.

Ignore that Knox warning - Linux emulation tries to initialize SELinux security extensions, and Knox doesn't allow that.
I'm not planning to monetize this app, it's just like Inkscape on PC.

I want to install Inkscape on mobile. my mobile screen size is less than 10 inches. so it is possible to install it on Android phone.
