Inkscape (full functionality)

Asked by Richard A Bevis on 2009-07-08

I recently installed Inkscape and would like to use it with all of its functions. Add/Remove lists some packages like dia, skencil, ruby, etc... that aren't installed with Inkscape, but need to be in order to take advantage of all of Inkscape's functions. My question then is this, exactly which other packages should be installed? Thank you for your time and attention. Richard

I'm not sure how to find that with inkscape, but I know that with Synaptic, you can right-click on a package and select "mark recommended for installation".

Awesome! You learn something new around here everyday. All the "recommended for installation" were lettered in gray, and when I looked through Synaptic I found them already installed. However, I found dia, skencil, ruby, etc... in "suggested for installation" and there you have it. This Ubuntu stuff, OS and community is fantastic. Thank you Vadim.
