Hahaha the @inkscape dev team has labeled my "hi Inkscape doesn't work at all with the current version of Debian" bug as...
If the AppImage fix is extremely difficult I can understand that but mmmmmaybe move that off being the first suggested way to install Inkscape on Debian and Ubuntu LTS?
(I didn't think the current version of Debian was an especially obscure OS but tbh I have not kept up on things, maybe I'm the penultimate desktop Debian user. It would actually explain a lot of things.)
@inkscape Debian 10. Inkscape 1.0.2. And the AppImage doesn't have to be used (but again, it's first in line on https://inkscape.org/release/1.0.2/gnulinux/ and if I was a newbie I wouldn't try the next one), but the Ubuntu ppa doesn't get along with Debian. I'm told by another Deb10 user that the Flatpak install is fine, but by then I was already compiling it from source (which went fine).
@inkscape Seems to work, though. At least, it pulls up the file selector on a Save As instead of just winking out of existence. I pulled https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/-/jobs/1245906993 which seems to be the most current master.
@silverseams Great! I'll try to make sure devs are aware of this needing to be a part of 1.1. Thanks for testing!
@silverseams It's in 1.1.x already.
