Import clip art question.

Henry W. Peters
Hi,

Just installed Sabayon Linux with a KDE desktop... I installed Inkscape
0.48. When I go to File --> Import... expecting to find import clip
art... not there. Question: What to do to enable it...? (I pasted
'openclipart.org' in the import/export preferences, didn't help).

Thanks for any advice.

Henry

Re: Import clip art question.

this option does not exist in Inkscape 0.48.4, on Windows, for reasons that I cannot remember.
However it does exist in recent development builds.
I am not familiar with how upgrades are done on Linux, but try going to
http://inkscape.org/download/?lang=en
to see if you can get a development version.

Thanks much Al,

I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me... (?  :)) 

New to Sabayon (a version of Gentoo), but not Inkscape... So I will have to do some research.

P.,s., this is what I was going on from my first message on this here:

http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/File-Import.html#File-Import-OpenClipArtLibrary

Open Clip Art Library

The command File icon Import From Open Clip Art Library opens a search dialog that connects to the Open Clip Art Library website, a source of free clip art. The dialog allows searching for drawings that match descriptive words. Previews of files are shown in a window on the right side of the dialog.

Import
              from Open Clip Art Library dialog.
Import From Open Clip Art Library dialog. An example of searching for a butterfly is shown.

You may have to set the server name (openclipart.org) in the Import/Export section of the Inkscape Preferences dialog. In the future, export to the library will also be supported.
