dad's iMac, macports inkscape, no app?

Postby hyp » Sun Jul 22, 2018 10:59 am

Created file on windows 10. Dad uses only iMac (high sierra). Followed instructions to install macports. Ran commandline install tool. No Inkscape app to launch.

How do I get inkscape on dad's imac?


this macports question unaddressed
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2311&p=11761&hilit=macport#p11761

this answered macports question refers to a partially functioning app, but not helpful
viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1810&p=9839&hilit=macport#p9839

Please say the advise forward from post 4 is not essential because dad won't do that: terminal and digging into .app finder tree

From what you can read here you need to install Apple´s developer Tools Xcode: https://inkscape.org/de/release/0.92.2/ ... cports/dl/
a 5.3GB chunk of tools.
Why not take the former version of Inkscape as a simple drag&drop install dmg? https://inkscape.org/de/release/0.92.2/mac-os-x/
Which still needs the X11 environment which needs to be installed first.
Just a suggestion.

Cheers

Someone else suggested using an inofficial version from github (on the mailing list):
