Welcome Slashdot!June 23, 2006
Pardon the slow site, particularly the screenshots and wiki, but do please enjoy the newly released Inkscape. Some packages are just starting to become available. See our downloads page or head to the SourceForge file list for the latest uploads. Note that SourceForge has been a bit unreliable lately, so if the links aren't working, please keep trying.

LGM report in Linux Format MagazineJune 9, 2006
JonCruz reports, "I just picked up the June issue of Linux Format magazine (Issue 80). Their cover this time is on 'Libre Graphics', and is coverage of the LGM. Gimp, Inkscape, Scribus and Xara each got two pages. Also, Inkscape people can be seen teeny-tiny on the pic of the lecture hall on the initial page, and then recognizable later on the Xara pages checking it out."
"Oh, and I was personally very excited to see it, as it's the first time I've really been interviewed for anything significant. :-)"
"Oh, and coming up, I hear that issue 81 will probably have a good article by Jon Phillips, covering many things."

Inkscape Trouble with Debian UnstableJune 1, 2006
A number of Debian Unstable users have reported major problems when using Inkscape. The symptoms vary but usually involve inkscape failing to start up. This appears to affect both Inkscape 0.43, and Inkscape compiled from SVN.
Wolfram Quester, Debian's Inkscape Package Maintainer, reports that currently there are two separate issues. Neither are technically Inkscape-specific nor Debian-specific but are due to related components.
The first issue is a libgc problem. Inkscape 0.43 dead locks with the new libgc 6.7; The new inkscape-pre1 simply segfaults. If you attach to the process using strace, you get millions of:
futex(0x10679060, FUTEX_WAIT, 2, NULL) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable) futex(0x10679060, FUTEX_WAIT, 2, NULL) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable) futex(0x10679060, FUTEX_WAIT, 2, NULL
Process 32245 detached
The solution for this issue is to downgrade libgc.
The second issue is seen by KDE users that have the gtk2-engines-gtk-qt package installed. Wolfi reports, 'The package is used for different theming of gtk applications under KDE. You have it if there is an item "appearance-->gtk styles and themes" in your KControl menu. It causes duplicate inclusion of themes via different rc-files. Yuya Nishihara found out that this leads to a crash if the theme uses the smooth engine of gtk. Other applications are affected by this, too.'
