The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Struggling to install
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:18:38 AM »
Hi all, new user here :)

I use a Mac with Sierra on it and looking to run Inkscape for prepping work on my laser cutter.

I downloaded and installed but when i run it all i see is a blank menu bar with just the "Inscape" entry at one end, nothing else and no GUI at all.

I have X11/Quartz already installed.

Any suggestions???

Follow the instrux at this link exactly. If you run into trouble click the faq link and read where it talks about gatekeeper https://inkscape.org/en/download/mac-os/
