When will inkscape bug 418242 be resolved?

Asked by Martin Goik on 2017-06-23

This annoying Inkscape (Linux?) bug report has been around for years now still being present giving rise to an impressive list of duplicates affecting so many users. Running inkscape and Java applications (Netbeans, Jdownloader, Xmlmind,...) simultaneously is effectively next to impossible and bug reports are vague on practical workarounds.

Hi Martin,

sorry, I don't know when it will be fixed, or how, or by whom.
You can add that question on the bug report, but I don't think it will likely speed up fixing, as it sounds like a reproach.

Perhaps you can help and investigate it a bit further, and then add additional info on the report?

The workaround:
"Workaround - disable offending output/export plugins"

means to delete / rename the extension files that are concerned. E.g. rename all .inx files of extensions that pop up to .inx.bak or similar. This means that you won't be able to use them any more, though, so only disable those you don't need.

(or disable the Java application)

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Thanks for your quick reply and advice

I'm very happy with Inkscapes functionality. So my mail was born out of
frustration why such a basic issue remains unresolved for so many years.

Currently I actually close my Java application in question.
Unfortunately this application is my Docbook editor I use to edit
documents which include Inkscape generated SVG's.

Again, thanks anyway! Martin
