Required softwares

The next version of Inksmoto will require Inkscape 0.46 or 0.47 This version of Inkscape no longer uses python-xml, but lxml instead. PyGtk is now needed instead of Tk. And python too (don't know the minimum required version required, but Inkscape 0.46 is packaged with python 2.5).

Installation on Windows


There is another way to get it too, this one illustartes the way to get it with Tortoise SVN so that you can easily update to the newest version.

Things needed

You need:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Tortoise SVN (or another svn program, I like tortoise best)
  • patience... (not really)
  • Latest official Inksmoto and Inkscape installed

Step 1. Get Tortoise SVN

Download the installer here: Tortoise SVN Install it.

Step 2. Checkout

Make sure that you remove the old inksmoto files from the extensions folder before proceeding. Go to your Inkscape installation directory and there to the share folder, for example:

  • "C:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\"

Then Right-Click the extensions folder to see the context menu of windows, you should see the tortoise svn and a button which says: "SVN Check out...".

Click Ok. Wait... It will download all the files needed and then you are done. Just open inkscape and voila.

Step 3. Testing

Open Inkscape and begin testing and developing. voila!

Installation on Mac OS X

There is a way to get the svn of Inksmoto for Mac OS X.
