You can find lots of marketing materials on Spread Ubuntu, they have some great looking SVG posters which can be downloaded and edited using Inkscape. You may also be interested in joining the Ubuntu Marketing Team or the Ubuntu Art Team which are both involved in created posters and logos. You can also find some nice materials on openclipart, while not ...

That's actually Inkscape's default. Open File → Document Properties and click the background colour. Make sure the alpha channel is 0. As so: Go to File → Export Bitmap and save a file with a .png extension. You're done.

[There are two types of editing software in media production: vector editors and bitmap editors. GIMP is the latter type of editor and .svg is a file extension used for vector graphics.] Inkscape can do even more. We can import the bitmaps we had already put so much work in to Inkscape and convert them with a few mouse clicks to nice vector graphics. Here ...

You could manually make an SVG fairly simply in a text editor. It's not a hard language. <svg height="2000" width="2000"> <polygon points="..." style="fill:white;stroke:black;stroke-width:1" /> </svg> So that's the base document. You'd replace the ... with a space-separated list of coordinates. I just used a text-editor's ...

It appears you can use Inkscape from command line: `#{INKSCAPE_PATH} -z -f #{source_svg} -w #{width} -j -e #{dest_png}` more details I imagine you can write a simple bash script to process all SVG files: #!/bin/sh for file in *.svg do /usr/bin/inkscape -z -f "${file}" -w 640 -e "${file}.png" done the example above converts all .svg files in the ...

It might be useful to contact your Local Community Team and ask if they have any professionally printed posters or flyers available. (We do!) The LoCoTeam might also have info about localised poster & flyer designs, and other promotional material. Or they might want to cooperate with you in having something printed (printing in larger volumes is a lot ...

GIMP is a raster graphics editor application. SVG is a form of vector graphics. If you want to edit SVG files, you should install the inkscape package and use Inkscape instead. Also, beware that SVG is not totally "scalable" in the sense that you will get a good image at every size you scale to, so depending on what you are creating with it, you may need to ...

Try gtk-vector-screenshot. According to it's specs it can only make screenshots of GTK3 applications but maybe you are lucky. I used it some time ago and it was fine. You can install it by: sudo apt-get install gtk-vector-screenshot and run it by: take-vector-screenshot Some sources also say you have to logout and login again before you can use it.

In addition to the above, you can also organize a Software Freedom Day event. Some of the flyers / posters / etc. are generic enough to be used year-round. You can find some of those at: http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/StartGuide#Useful_Documents.2C_Templates.2C_Files_and_Examples

If you want to make a copy of them all in to one directory try the following: sudo updatedb mkdir $HOME/svg locate *.svg | awk -F'/' '{X=NF-1;Y=NF-2;Z=NF-3}{ system("cp "$0" '$HOME'/svg/"$Z"\"-\""$Y"\"-\""$X"\"-\""$NF) }' That will copy all SVG files into an svg folder in your home. You can of course adjust those paths as needed. Since a lot of the System ...

You have two options: Option 1 The first requires a recent builds of Blender (available from Graphicall), which can now use the Freestyle rendering engine Freestyle is a software for Non-Photorealistic Line Drawing rendering from 3D scenes. Within Freestyle there exists a plugin, SVGWriter, that can write Blender scenes to SVGs. Instructions for ...

You can find a lot of mimetype SVG icons in /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable. A lot of application icons are located in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps and /usr/share/pixmaps.

Open File -> Document Properties and click the background color. Then set alpha 0 in background color dialog -> close the dialog -> File menu -> Export Bitmap -> Choose export file name (click on Browse button -> type file name with .png extension) -> click on Export button. ! Done.

Overview Turns out there is a way to do this using xsltproc, a command-line xslt-processor. The style-sheet we are going to use was developed by Robert Kosten and released on the issues tracker of the evolus Pencil project page. Quoted from the bug report: I would love to have this through the UI, but until then I've written a small XSLT-Sheet that ...

So you are looking for raster to vector graphics converter. potrace & autotrace both are in Ubuntu repository. Myself I tried potrace before which gave nice results with default options. As I remember, both tools do not support compressed formats as input, only bitmap images. See Potrace examples Potrace: utility to transform bitmaps into vector ...

If you have GNU Parallel try this (based on Letizia's solution): #!/bin/bash if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then width=$1 height=$1 else if [ $# -eq 2 ]; then width=$1 height=$2 else echo "Error: missing parameters!" echo "Usage: myscript.sh width [height]" exit 1 fi fi parallel inkscape -f {} -w $width -h $height -e {.} ::: *.svg ...

Try Gimp "Spread" filter (Filter > Noise > Spread) with 40px value for your sample I found it in a comment in Inkscape bug tracker and it produces great results IMHO

Well, I don't know how you expect dither to work, but usually you dither hires signal to lores, while you seem to expect to dither lores, which can't work of course. Yeah, no. Dithering in gradients is not done for reasons of resolution, but for reasons of bit-rate. You get banding effects because InkScape's export to PNG incorrectly rounds down the ...

Anyway, I wanted to suggest SubLCD as I've used it in the past, but as it works with PPM images I just don't remember how I did transparency, and it's unusable for small fonts as is Here is quick and dirty solution (I don't know about your source files and if this is usable to you, but in general works fine): Render SVG on screen with EOG or else. Capture ...

Corel as well as Illustrator can recognize and read SVG format. But the problem is that sometimes they don't open SVG properly. Generally some publishers can print from pdf. I think, the main issue is to get along with the publishing house about the file prepared for print.

Don't know if I come too late. For simple 3D modeling + vector rendering there is swift3D (commercial software). Results are not bad and editable with illustrator (with of course complex pathes).

You can Use Inkscape you can import the ilustrator 9.0 version file, and corel 7 X14 version files but i don't recommend to you those formats because the conversion is not so good. Normally wen i have to deal with files from others programs, i use PDF or SVG the standart file of Inkscape. I hope i have helped. http://inkscape.org/

There are many free plugins for Sketchup and one of those does just what you require,and you dont need to buy Sketchup pro. By the way it is able to export many types of 3D formats via free plugins also. Check your info before giving poor advice C.S Cameron Here is the plugin page for reference

sudo find / -name *.svg This will list all files with .svg extension To get the output to a file: sudo find / -name *.svg > output.txt UPDATE: To copy all .svg files in to a specific folder find ./ -name "*.svg" -exec cp '{}' ./mnt/output_folder/ ';' This will copy all .svg files to /mnt/output_folder

Maybe this is not an issue of too little RAM, but of a CPU bottleneck? Anyway, what you can try, if you handle a large drawing, is to view the whole thing in Outline or No Filters mode (See View-Display Mode in the menu). http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/View-Misc.html#View-Misc-OutlineMode

Open the svg up in Evince, it should cause librsvg to crash in the same way. It should also crash Eye of Gnome too. You can turn off thumbnailing in the nautilus settings, but the preview images are still generated when you click on certain media types. Gnome isn't known for being very configurable or modular, you're only hope is to install a fixed version ...

In nautilus: Go to /usr/ Click the search button and type .svg Go to the bookmarks window and click "Add Bookmark" The virtual search folder will update automatically. It wont be fast... But it should work.

I've found locate to be the fastest/most useful tool for things like this. Try running locate *.svg > ~/svgs.txt in a terminal or from Alt+F2. To access them from inkscape, you could possibly do a little scripting (I'm no bash genius :P), so that you produce symlinks to a new folder with all the existing svgs (from the output of locate). Maybe if you can ...
