If you are sure you can face Inkscape being unstable, then please continue reading. First you should install all the [[Tracking Dependencies|dependencies]].
 
* On Ubuntu 16.04 this can be done by:
 
 
<pre>
 
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake autopoint intltool libtool \
 
libglib2.0-dev libpng12-dev libgc-dev libfreetype6-dev liblcms2-dev \
 
libgtkmm-2.4-dev libxslt1-dev libboost-dev libpopt-dev libgsl0-dev libaspell-dev
 
</pre>
 
 
* On Ubuntu 18.04 the above do longer works. Please refer to either
 
** https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape-ci-docker/blob/master/Dockerfile
 
** or with the deb-src repo added: <pre>sudo apt-get build-dep inkscape</pre>
 
 
Now you should have every dependency you need to build Inkscape.
 
 
 
==== Additional dependencies ====
 
If you want to have pdf support you need to install poppler:
 
 
<pre>
 
  sudo apt-get install libpoppler-dev libpoppler-glib-dev
 
</pre>
 
 
If you want to have optional features you may need to install some more packages:
 
 
<pre>
 
  sudo apt-get install libgnome-vfsmm-2.6-dev libssl-dev libmagick++9-dev libwpg-dev libcdr-dev libvisio-dev
 
</pre>
 
 
Note: On Ubuntu 18.04 libmagick++9-dev is obsoleted by graphicsmagick-libmagick-dev-compat, and libgnome-vfsmm-2.6-dev no longer exists.
 
 
=== Getting source from gitlab ===
 
 
<pre>git clone --recursive https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape</pre>
 
 
or later on a checkout where submodules may be incomplete
 
 
<pre>git submodule update --init --recursive</pre>
 
 
=== Configuring and Compiling ===

=== Testing ===
 
 
In addition to the instructions above, developers should always run automated tests before committing any changes.  This is achieved by using the "make check" command.

==== Fix no icons problem ====
 
 
If you run this and you find that you have no tool icons it's because it's looking in the wrong place for them. To fix that you need to make a symbolic link to the correct location. Here is an example:
 
 
<pre>
 
  sudo ln -s /usr/share/inkscape /usr/local/share/inkscape
 
</pre>
 
 
=== Update your version ===
 
 
If you want to update your already built inkscape to the very latest version, you need to run following commands in inkscape source directory.
 
 
<pre>
 
    git pull
 
    make
 
    make install
 
</pre>

Consider using pre-built packages

This is a short how to build the latest development version. If you don't want to change the source code, you can avoid this effort and use pre-built packages, either the well-tested stable version, or the newest developer's version intended for testing. See Installing_Inkscape#Ubuntu_or_Debian_Linux.

Compiling unstable developement version

Please refer to https://inkscape.org/en/develop/getting-started/


Installing

If you used some CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX other than /usr, then you may install using usual 'make install' or 'sudo make install', depending on the location. If the the location prefix was /usr, then "sudo make install" is not recommended, as debian package manager would know nothing about new package. The better alternative is using checkinstall. If checkinstall is not installed, you can install it the usual way "sudo apt-get install checkinstall".

   sudo checkinstall

Happy inkscapeing.
