General :: Import An EPS File In Inkscape?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm using Inkscape, and I'm trying to import an EPS file to use it as a vector and eventually save it as an SVG.

This link here mentions several methods:


But the responses aren't rated since it's a forum, so I thought I'd ask here to find the best answer. I'd prefer not to have to use some website to convert the file to a PDF first.

Either way, when I import an EPS into Inkscape, or use the website to convert it to a PDF, in both cases the resulting file loses all colour and gradients, and the EPS file gets cut off on the right side.

It looks like ps2pdf is clipping the file incorrectly, and Inkscape is eliminating the colour.

I have these version installed in Ubuntu Lucid Linux:

Inskape 0.47.0-2ubuntu2
Ghostscript 8.71.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.3

Debian :: Using LaTeX Text In Inkscape - PyXML Import Error

May 20, 2011

I want to use LaTeX text in Inkscape. Just a simple thing like $$x_i$$. There is an extension called textext with installation manual. Basically one have to copy four files into /usr/share/inkscape/extensions and one more option appears in Extensions menu. So far so good.

If I try to use that extension I get an error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/", line 7, in <module>
import xml.dom.ext.reader.Sax2
ImportError: No module named ext.reader.Sax2

Googling you can find several topics about that error from 2004 or earlier saying to install PyXML and providing a link to it, where it is said "Out of date. Do not use it." I have tried to build that PyXML though -- without success (lots of compile errors).

General :: Cvs Import File Group Owner ?

Jun 11, 2010

This is about ubuntu 10.04

I can import projects to my cvs repository only when the repository set to group owner cvs. Which is fine to me.

But I found the project folder/files that I imported into the repository have group name other than cvs (in fact, that's my username). And that prevents others to check out my code.

Software :: Manipulate Text File To Allow Import To Excel?

Jun 11, 2010

Have managed to create a simple script to poll the various printers we have at our company for a page count via SNMP. At the moment the script echos the printer name to a text file and then the snmp output is appended to the next line. In my rush I thought by using sed to add a comma to the end of each line would mean it would import in to excel nicely. So rather than having:

Debian :: Import List From Excel File To Create Many Users

Sep 22, 2015

I'm working in a school and we have a Apple server, we have many problem with it. So, I would install a linux server instead.

Anyway, there is just one big problem (or I miss a simple tip to do it )

We have 1300 students. If I must create them one by one, that will take a lot of time. Actually with the apple server, we can go on a web interface & import an excel list with theses columns :

"Name", "Login", "Password", "Class", "Group", "HDD Space", "Print quota", "Internet access or not", etc ...

Due to this tool, I can upload an excel files with my 1300 students & a couple hours after, they have an account with a personal space & a shared space with their class.

My question is : This tool exist on Debian/Linux world ?

Debian Configuration :: How To Import VPN Config Files With No File Extension

Feb 10, 2016

I've downloaded configuration files for my VPN, Kovurt, and they don't have a .ovpn file extension. Further, when I tried to enter the information manually (using this guide), I saw that the files only include the <ca> tags, and no <cert>, <key> or <tls-auth> tags.

Here is the content of one of the config files, simply named 'Tokyo' with no extension. (adding .ovpn didn't work either):

Code: Select allclient
dev tun
proto udp
remote 443
resolv-retry infinite

[Code] ....

I have an open ticket with Kovurt asking for the other info, but I know already that they don't have much in the way of documentation or support for Linux.

Ubuntu Networking :: Import VPN Connection From Ovpn File Containing Certificates

Mar 24, 2010

I am fairly clueless when it comes to open vpn configuration file. Though I should have some understanding to execute the fix if it is available.

I have a ovpn file that is created by my organization (so theoretically there should be nothing wrong with it) containing not only the typical connection information, but also my CA key, certerficate/Public and certificate/Private key. I was able to locate these keys using the standard text editors.

When I follow the procedure to import (Right click on Internet Icon --> Edit Connection --> VPN Tab --> Import) none of my keys were imported (perhaps the import is not complete). I think because of the import failure I was not able to click ok and create the connection.

Is there a method to get around this and get it working? I have been looking for existing solution online but I was not able to find any similar cases with mine.

Fedora :: Inkscape Crash On F12?

Dec 1, 2009

So I puts my shinny new F12 install on my new computer. It's a little climb for me but for the most part easier then some of the other F's that I have tried to install.

One problem I have right now is my inkscape crashes as soon as I try to put some text on a page. I tried the automatic bug report thingy but it complained about me not having a log in. inksacpe is really becoming a very important application for me, I have been trying to shy away from the Windows programs I have been using.

I must say, F12 seems to really be advancing the fedora project into a nice desktop system.

Press the arrow key in the opposite direction you used in step 5 the same number of times.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Apt-get Install Inkscape?

Apr 26, 2010

I see (been using Inkscape for couple of weeks now) that there are features that I want to harness in Inkscape 0.47. I have 0.46 on Ubuntu 9.04 in the "Ubuntu Ultimate flavour".Oh by the way, is 10.04 stable? I read that 9.10 wasn't as stable cause of new programs and software and stuff that I have no clue about (I just want linux to be my stable OS in the back ground that doesn't require to much tinkering from me). And having asked that, can I upgrade to 10.04 via an installation disk? I usually get my OS disks from...well, wont say there name otherwise I might be accused of advertising. (downloading installations is expansive with a 3G card until I get ADSL).

Ubuntu :: Need Flowchart Templates For Inkscape / Dia

Aug 30, 2010

I need to draw some flowcharts. I don't have the time to create them, I just need a template where I can manipulate the boxes and edit the text without worrying about the colors and the forms. There's any place where I can get that?

btw, which one is better to create flow charts, Inkscape or Dia? Dia seems to me more intuitive and easy to use but I can't discover how to rotate objects per example, I think it's a little limited in options.

I'm looking for something simple and classic like this, with labeled arrows.
