Issues Loading Inkscape on macOS Sierra (Version 10.12)

Danielle Forrest

I have version 0.91 of Inkscape (installed 64bit version) and xQuartz version 2.7.11.

I have used Inkscape on this computer before without problems but now it won’t load (program goes to not responding).  I start xQuartz first because I read something that said I should, but that didn’t help.  

I’m assuming this has to do with the OS since nothing else had changed (I don’t remember when I updated to macOS Sierra, so I’m making a wild assumption here).  To be safe, I did remove and reinstall xQuartz and Inkscape (in case something had become corrupted) but that didn’t fix the problem.

If you've re-installed, then it may be necessary to give explicit permission for it to open the first time. Right click (or control-click) on the Inkscape application icon in the Finder, and then select "Open" from the menu there.

In case the previous tips don't help, take a look at this FAQ item:
