How to install Inkscape 0.43 on Breezy Badger
From the Ubuntu Forums thread here:
Step 1: Open up synaptic or apt-get install: libglibmm-2.4-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libSigc++2.0-dev Step 2: Get the following packages from Debian testing: libgc1c2_6.5-1_i386.deb libgc-dev_6.5-1_i386.deb libgtkspell0_2.0.10-3_i386.deb libgtkspell-dev_2.0.10-3_i386.deb and install them. Download the Inkscape 0.43 source and compile and install it. Or Alternate Step 2: Download this package http://keithperkins.net/files/inkscape-.43+deps.tar.gz extract it, and dpkg -i all the files in the order above, and then do the same for the Inkscape_0.43-1_i386.deb (Yes I made one) Or you can, also download just the Inkscape .deb package http://keithperkins.net/files/inkscape_0.43_1.tar.gz I posted this in the Customization Forum last night but it hasn't been moderated yet (or their not going to let it in--I've not word on it, and don't know how longit's supposed to take). I made a .deb for Inkscape .43 and tar/gzipped it up with the deps that aren't in Ubuntu repos, and uploaded to my site. Also just the .deb if anyone just wants that. Works fine on my computer--YMMV. If anyone of the backports people want to use it for the backports go ahead.
