How to change extension folder

Postby monant » Sun Oct 07, 2018 2:15 am

Hi, I use last version of inkscape.

I have a particular request, and I hope that someone can help me.

I need to change default extensions folder of inkscape for using 2 installation with different plugins, but when I open Update -> Preferences -> Sistem input field is disabled.

HELP ME

Thanks

You need to set the environment variable for the config directory and for the path where to look for Inkscape differently. See https://inkscape.org/doc/inkscape-man.html

If you're on Linux, also see this https://gitlab.com/Moini/make_ink/blob/ ... scape#L152 , where it is set in a bash script.
