Whiteboard/Inkboard new development

Postby NotungX » Thu Mar 01, 2012 5:30 am

I would like to see the inkboard / whiteboard functionality working again in Inkscape (left out in 0.47). As I am a developer I decided to have a look to the old implementation and try to integrate it in the current version.
So I took the release 0.46 from the repository and compiled it. I had to fix some parts of the code to make it compile in Debian Squeeze (using gcc 4.4.5).

The problem that I have after building is that inkscape crashes at the begining and I have no idea how to fix it.
It seems to come from src/widgets/desktop-widget.cpp in the function

Code: Select all

void cms_adjust_set_sensitive( SPDesktopWidget *dtw, bool enabled ) {
  Inkscape::Verb* verb = Inkscape::Verb::get( SP_VERB_VIEW_CMS_TOGGLE );
    if ( verb ) {
        SPAction *act = verb->get_action( dtw->viewwidget.view );
        if ( act ) {
            sp_action_set_sensitive( act, enabled );  // <- **** This call is the one crashing / returning just on the start. ****
    gtk_widget_set_sensitive( dtw->cms_adjust, enabled );

Any idea about this? Otherwise who could help me with this issue? I am not familiarized with Inkscape development ( yet ;-) ) and I would appreciate some input!!

Thanks a lot!

Sorry i can't be of help, but you might try asking this question on the inkscape-devel list. ( https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/lis ... cape-devel )

Please keep this thread updated if you do get inkboard working again, that would be AWESOME!
