Hello,
I use VL 5.8 SOHO FInal on Pentium III Machine.
I downloaded latest version of Inkscape from www.linuxpackages.net. installed necessary libraries.
 installed inkscape by using KDE's KPackage just to test it.

I was prompted that installation was OK Result=0 and Inkscape appeared in the Graphics menu.

But when I start it it doe snot appear on the screen.

I started it from console and I got the following message:
inkscape: error while loading shared libraries: libgc.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Please advise,

veki

Apparently, libgc is some sort of "garbage collector". You should be able to get the source here: http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc/#where

Somewhat off topic but you don't like Xara Xtreeme which is provided with VL 5.8? It does the same things as InkScape AFAIK...

Hello,

I like Xara Smiley
Just testing various packages since school of graphic design here in belgrade wants to use Linux in tehir educational work.  So, since I found Inscape o Linuxpackages.net I thought it might be good to check it. Roll Eyes

Thanx,

hi veki! Are you sure the error is exactly the same? You are having some depedencies issues. To say it short, inkscape needs another programms to run and you dont have them. You should run inkscape from the console again, and then check what library is missing, or check the dependencies on the inkscape site and install them all:

http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/CompilingInkscape#Getting_and_Installing_Source_packages

You dont need to install them all from source, try slapt-get first  Wink

If the problem still is libgc, post back here.

Hope this help!

PS: I installed inkscape on vl5.1 some time ago, so is not very difficult.

Hello,

I installed dependencies that are listed on www.linuxpackages.net
I noticed that during installation of  glibmm there were additional automatic update of glibc.

Maybe that is an issue.  I am sure that teh problem is the same and that all libraries listed on www.linuxpackages.net are installed.

Hello,

Yes, output of the terminal is the same.  It seems to me that packager on linuxpackages.net does not have a habit to reply on posted questions.

From my pont there are possible failures:
1. there is more depndencies than listed there
2. dependencies listed on linuxpackages.net are not well for VL 5.8 SOHO
3. some of dependencies should be additional twekaed, but that is not documented

I ma investigating what may be issue.  All depndencies are liste din my gslapt as installed.
Best wishes,

Where did libgc install? Did it leave a file called libgc.so.1? Did you run /sbin/ldconfig after installing it?

Hello,

After running /sbin/ldconfig I can run Inkscape normally.
I think that such a thing should be documented.

Congratulations and thanks on helping me and students of graphic design school.


Sincerely,

The custom is to edit your original post so that it has [SOLVED] or something similar in the title.

Sorry to be so blunt.

hello,

It si not blunt.  It is normal so people who do have the same issue may be sure that they will find answer for their question.

I will these days pay more attention to upgrade of some libs through gslapt since it seems to me that it can render some packages unusable.

By asking and looking for answers we help other members of our community to use VL easier.
