You must compile inkscape with the configure option --enable-whiteboard
Here i write my experience of a plain user with the whiteboard.

The file pedro.ini is the file where the connection data like Login name, Server Host and password is stored unencrypted. It is written in the same dirctory from where inkscape was started. The first connection attempt gives a message on the command line, that the file pedro.ini can't be opened for write. This is confusing for a plain user, because he don't know what that file is for and if it is bad or real bad or nothing to care about.

A new window pop up called '''Pedro XMPP Client'''.
  
When you are in the '''connect''' window you can't do anything in the '''pedro''' window (e.g. copy and paste), but the pedro window is there and not greyed out to show the user "here is nothing to do for you".

Use menu '''File=>Connect''' to connect to the server.

A help is needed in the ''connect'' window to explain what comes in what syntax in which field. The user should get examples of some servers to prevent something like "www.jabber.org" in the host field.

This is the working whiteboard....
This is the server, which is already written in the field '''Host''' and for the user it seems to be the recommended server, but a connection attempt by me is followed by a pedro screen that appears to be frozen (at least for some time). The first time i thought inkscape is frozen, so i have to kill that process manually. Should be made more userfriendly. (e.g. like messages for the user "Connecting to server" " connection failed. Please check your firewall or internet connection" "Login to jabber.org successful" a bit more chatty)
