Building under Ubuntu Dapper is easier than ever:

   sudo apt-get build-dep inkscape
   sudo apt-get install liblcms-dev libboost-graph-dev build-essential
   # Untar and navigate to the inkscape source folder
   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"

This was done on a recently installed Dapper (Ubuntu 6.06) system. I built Inkscape version 0.44.

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
