Hello, I am getting stuck for a problem related to the lack of Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) recognition.
I am using openSUSE 10.3 x86_64.
Both ggreeter than screenlets fail to open or recognize svg files.
Couldn’t recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/gdm/themes/…svg
By trying to start screenlets-manager from console I have not SVG library or module installed correctly, screenlets reports that RSVG module is not present and also there is lack of python gconf.
But I have both librsvg than python-gconf installed.
I suppose the problems are caused by a previous software-update, wherein I had GNOME:STABLE enabled among the repositories so I dowloaded some pkgs that are not compliant with the default 10.3.
Note: I can open svg files with any of graphic viewer of my system; the lack is located at O.S. level.
I would like some hints to resolve this problem.
Some applications will recognise .svg but for now use ImageMagick to create a .jpg or .png version.
To launch ImageMagick open a console and enter
Hi John, my problem is not related to application itself, but on the overall file-system which, probably has been messed up after a software update.
Probably some libraries are not correctly installed or are of a wrong version, or even are lacking.
That’s the theme I am investigating on.
TKS for your reply.
I enabled again GNOME:STABLE repository and I updated several gnome, gtk, and python pkgs, but gdm, which I left as older version:
I noticed that a new SVG pkg was get brand new installed:
rsvg-view was not installed and I never found it into the official repositories.
Now I can both see the SVG themes from within gdm-themes, as use screenlets-manager without any problems.
By the way I would like to know if others opensuse 10.3 users are using the newer versions of gnome pkgs, including gdm as those available from GNOME:STABLE.
Thanks to the openSuSE Community.
rsvg does not handle some important SVG features such as flowParagraphs; it’s better to use inkscape’s built-in converter for generating bitmaps.
