The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) 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. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. 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???
