I have the same bug here.

Comment 3 VnPenguin 2005-06-15 10:41:39 UTC
Just tried static rpm from
The same bug when using command line above.

Comment 4 Nicu Buculei 2005-06-15 10:49:31 UTC
In order to escape the bug I switched to the autopackage version from which appears to work fine

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-26 01:10:24 UTC
Inkscape 0.42 fixes this here when building it for FC4. Update prepared in CVS,
Fedora Extras development for now, however.

Phillip, what's the background of this comment in the spec?

#temporarily disabled until I can look into it further
#--with-gnome-print             \

Comment 6 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-29 18:33:03 UTC
Upstream doesn't build with gnome-print either, so 0.42-2.fc4 will fix this.
