User Scripts & Dragons - [solved] inkscape: wrong colors when export to pdf

Post subject: [solved] inkscape: wrong colors when export to pdf
Hi everybody,

I've got a serious inkscape problem: When I try to export a svg-file to pdf all embedded pictures have wrong colors (blue-red errors - it's like humans turn to smurfs...).

Can anybody with current aptosid settings confirm that?

Well, it seems to be a known bug since the begin of july: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/804311

I'd be glad of any idea for a workaround!
Thanks in advance!

I just sketched out a drawing and saved it as a pdf and it saved in the right colours

apt-cache policy inkscape

Hey, thanks a lot for the rapid check!
Well, drawings are doing well here, too. Could you check how it is with an *embedded (imported) bitmap picture*?

I've just imported an embedded bitmap and successfully saved it as a pdf with no colour issues.

Thanks drb, now I've got it!

It was a version mistake: Inkscape 0.48.1+bzr10330 from the frickel repo has this bug. Now I installed 0.48.1-2.1+b1 (64 bit) from sid. Colors are well now!

The dev-version seems to be quite buggy at the moment. It also had problems with Cairo and the printing functions. I've already sent Bugreports related to those problems.
Can you install the frickelplatz Inkscape and gdb, execute the following commands and send me the whole terminal output?

Simply do this:

(gdb) exec-file /usr/bin/inkscape
(gdb) run
*try to reproduce the error with the appearing inkscape. If it hangs up, kill the inkscape process (not gdb!)*
*output, output,...*
(gdb) bt
*backtrace, backtrace,...*

Please send me all information that you can give about the error so that I can write a new proper bug report (or report it by yourself, if you want to).

Hello sx9,

thanks for your info and sorry about the delay (I lost sight of this thread since it moved from "software" to "experimental"...).


good news, I just installed inkscape 0.48.2+bzr10448 from frickelplatz and the colors of pdf exports - even with embedded bitmap pictures - are well now!

This bug was smashed. Smile
