Inkscape Portable 0.48.1 has been released. Inkscape Portable is an open source scalable vector graphics editor packaged as a portable app, so you can do your graphics work on the go. It has all the same great features of Inkscape including markers, clones, alpha blending and has a streamlined interface. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Suite. And it's open source and completely free.
PortableApps.com Platform 2.0 Beta 5 users who already have this app installed, simply click 'Check for Updates' in your PA.c Menu to update to the new version.
Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.
Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. We also aim to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development.
Working With Inkscape Developers
As with many of our new releases, we've worked directly with the Inkscape developers on this portable package and it is hosted by the Inkscape project itself and distributed as the portable version of their software. We'd like to thank the Inkscape developers for their cooperation and for working with us to make Inkscape more portable.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
Inkscape Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.
Inkscape Portable is available for immediate download from the Inkscape Portable homepage. Get it today!
I have tried to get this app installed, but I keep getting this error:
Extract: error writing to file tango_icons.svg
I am using a 500GB portable drive with 300GB free space.
Generally, this is caused by one of a few things. Either a logical error on the drive itself (chkdsk and fix errors), being too deep into the directory structure (only an issue if you're installing it to an excessively long/deep path), or hardware issues with the drive.
Thank you for the response,
Thank you for the response, this is the path J:\papps then the folder the app creates.
I have installed 3 portable apps after trying to install Inkscape with no issues.
No other issues with the drive, all installed apps run great.
might help too.
This is an error during install itself.
sorry about that.
The only time where I observed this was when I was out of space on the drive (or on the %TEMP%-drive) but thats obviously not the case here.
