Building under Ubuntu Dapper is easier than ever: (Done on a system that already had build-essential installed, may or may not matter. Used Inkscape version inkscape-0.43+0.44pre4)

sudo apt-get build-dep inkscape
sudo apt-get install liblcms-dev libboost-graph-dev
sudo make install

Notes: build-dep gets all the dependencies for the version of Inkscape that comes with Ubuntu. We're not building the same version, but most of the dependencies are the same.

libcms-dev was required for ./configure to work, and libboost-graph-dev was needed for "network connector layout functionality"

The following packages are need to compile cvs inkscape under a default Ubuntu Hoary/Breezy/Dapper system:

  apt-get install cvs build-essential intltool libtool libgtkmm-2.4-dev libglib2.0-dev libpng12-dev libxslt1-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libpopt-dev libgc-dev

Inkscape requires libgc-6.4.

Breezy/Dapper doesn't require any further work.

Hoary uses version 6.3, which is provided in the Repos. (Is there somewhere to get a .deb for 6.4?)

To overwrite libgc-6.3 with libgc-6.4:

  Download gc6.4
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  sudo make install

libgc 6.5 debs for ubuntu
