User Notes:

Installation of Inkscape

First, fix build failure with glibc-2.32:

sed -i '/#include <iostream>/a #include <atomic>' src/ui/tool/node.cpp

Install Inkscape by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  \
      ..                          &&

This package does not come with a working test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install


This package installs icon files into the /usr/share/icons/hicolor hierarchy and desktop files into the /usr/share/applications hierarchy. You can improve system performance and memory usage by updating /usr/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme and /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache. To perform the update you must have GTK+-2.24.33 or GTK+-3.24.24 installed (for the icon cache) and desktop-file-utils-0.26 (for the desktop cache) and issue the following commands as the root user:

gtk-update-icon-cache -qtf /usr/share/icons/hicolor &&
update-desktop-database -q

Command Explanations

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release: This switch is used to build the release library without any debug `assert` in the code.

-DWITH_DBUS=ON: use this if you wish to use inkscape in interactive scripts which manipulate images.
